Admission Requirements

Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree, preferably with a foundation in the liberal arts. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.  Some exception can be made and conditional acceptance is granted.

Prerequisite courses are a lifespan development course and a research methods course with content consistent with the ones listed in the Admission Requirements section of the college catalog.

For admission, students must submit an application to the University, an application to the HMS program, two completed recommendation forms from professional or academic sources, a personal statement detailing their reason for seeking admission into the program, and undergraduate transcripts. An interview with program faculty will then be arranged.

If you should have any questions prior to or during the admissions process, do not hesitate to contact us directly. For Financial Aid, bookstore, and other important UIS links, see our Links page.

The program admits students twice each year:

  • Preference for fall admissions is given to students who have submitted application materials by February 15.
  • Preference for spring admissions is given to students who have submitted application materials by September 15.

Admission to the program is based on academic competence, interest and experience in helping others, and evidence of personal characteristics associated with success when working with people from vulnerable populations.
