Along with the YSU Graduate Application, students must submit three letters of reference: one from a faculty member, one from an employer, and one from another source, or two from faculty members and one from another source. Regular admission requires an unrecalculated cumulative undergraduate grade-point average of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) and submission of satisfactory GRE (general test) score only by request of Academic Advisory Committee.
