Applying to graduate school when you’re working full time can seem like a daunting task, but many universities are leveraging the latest edtech to make the application process run as smoothly as possible.
At Brandeis GPS, our online application allows prospective students to upload resumes, statements of goals and other key admissions elements directly to our online system. One item that does need to be submitted externally is your official transcript, which we encourage you to submit electronically.
Please see below for some FAQs our admissions team often receives about the application process.
Do you require the GMAT or GRE?
No! If you decide to apply to GPS, do not worry about these exams: we do not require them for admission. We don’t feel like they speak to the nature of what is required to excel in our programs.
Does Brandeis GPS accept electronic transcripts?
Yes, we do accept electronic transcripts as long as they are official. This is the easiest and fastest method for both the applicant and us.
How should I send electronic transcripts?
Provide your school(s) with our email address: email@example.com. We’ll confirm with you once the documents are received.
What address should I use for paper transcripts?
These should be sent directly from the school(s) to our mailing address:
Graduate Professional Studies
415 South Street, MS 084
Waltham, MA 02453-2728
We’ll let you know when we receive them.
Do I need to submit transcripts if I transferred courses?
Yes, we require official transcripts for all colleges/universities attended.
What if my program of interest is not related to what I studied in undergrad?
While some applicants may have studied an undergraduate major relevant to their desired graduate program, many have not. Make sure to highlight your professional skills, certifications and expertise in your application. You’ll be able to do this through your resume and statement of goals. (Please note that some programs may have specific requirements, which you can see by clicking on your program of interest here.)
How can I check the status of my application items?
At any time, you can login to your applicant status page once your application is submitted to see what items are pending: Login
