Graduation from an accredited college or university with a bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 2.75 grade-point average (four-point scale) or graduation from an accredited college or university with a master’s degree or higher with a minimum of 3.00 grade-point average (four-point scale) is required for unconditional admission to the School of Graduate Studies. A student who has an undergraduate grade-point average below 2.75 or a graduate grade-point average below 3.00 will be admitted conditionally and will be allowed to take 9 hours of graduate work. If a grade-point average of 3.00 or higher is achieved in the first 9 hours, regular admission to the graduate program may be granted and these credit hours may apply toward a degree. If a minimum 3.0 grade-point average is not achieved, the student will not be permitted to take additional graduate work and the hours will not apply toward a degree.
In addition to the application, the following credentials must be filed with International Programs and the School of Graduate Studies in order for an international student to be considered for admission to graduate school.

Admission Decisions After these credentials are on file, the student’s application will be reviewed by the School of Graduate Studies and a decision made. An acceptance letter and an I-20 form cannot be released to a student until all of the above admission requirements are met.
Applications are welcomed from international students who wish to attend the University of West Alabama. We encourage the admission of international students; therefore, full consideration is given to all applicants.
