Successful MPC applicants will have a well-rounded application, including competitive grades in their undergraduate courses, especially in communication and composition and a professional-quality writing sample. Admission to the MPC graduate and certificate programs is based on an evaluation of undergraduate work, professional experience, and potential to succeed in communication-related fields. Students may enter the program at the beginning of the Fall, Spring, or Summer semester.
A candidate for admission must submit the following materials to the Office of Graduate Admissions:
When an individual's application file is complete with required documents and according to application dates, the application materials are evaluated by the MPC Admissions Committee. Once accepted to the MPC program, the applicant must submit a $250 tuition deposit within 30 days or less, which guarantees a place in the entering class. Westminster operates rolling admissions, so it is best to apply as soon as possible. To preserve the faculty to student ratio, space availability in each class is limited. Westminster College reserves the right to close the class earlier than dates specified if enrollment goals are met before those dates.
