The Watts College of Public Service & Community Solutions is excited to have you continue your education with us. Once you have selected the degree program you are interested in pursuing, we encourage you to submit your application and any required materials as soon as possible.

Each program is unique. While some programs applications will require the basic materials, be aware that others may require additional materials (GRE scores or recommendation letters) --so be sure to read through your program details and application requirements carefully. The standard processes and procedures for graduate degree applications have been outlined by the ASU Graduate College. Detailed program information can be found on the degree program page, as well as on the College and School sites.

ASU's minimum admissions standards for graduate, certificate and doctoral programs:

  • You must have maintained a “B” (3.00 on a 4.00 scale) grade point average (GPA) in the last 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours of undergraduate course work. If you do not meet the minimum GPA requirements, your application may still be considered.
  • International students should be aware of the additional admissions standards.

As a graduate student, you should know that costs and funding for your education may different from your undergraduate experience. Make sure you take advantage of the financing assistance opportunities and materials being offered by ASU.
