Graduate Admissions

Embry-Riddle recognizes that working adults may be interested in furthering their education for professional reasons and/or self-enhancement and do not wish to pursue a degree with Embry-Riddle. We also recognize that transient students, those pursuing a degree with another institution, may wish to take a course or courses with Embry-Riddle. For these reasons, Embry-Riddle allows students who meet full admission requirements to take up to 12 semester hours as a non-degree seeking or transient student. Official or unofficial transcripts must be submitted to the University before the student is allowed to enroll in courses. Non-degree seeking and transient students must meet the same academic standards as degree seeking students. For students who subsequently apply for entry into a degree program, additional documentation may be required.

Graduate General Admissions Requirements

All graduate applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited degree-granting institution with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Graduate applicants who already possess a master's degree or have completed graduate coursework from an accredited degree-granting institution must also have a 3.0 CGPA or higher at the graduate level.

Applicants with an undergraduate degree and no graduate course work are required to submit the following:

  • Official transcript from the accredited degree-conferring institution

Applicants with an undergraduate degree and graduate-level course work are required to submit the following:
