Admissions Process

Students are admitted to the MS in Human-Computer Interaction program only in the fall semester: entering classes range in size from 30 to 40.
 
There is no advantage to having your application in early - review begins on the application due date of February 1, with most acceptance letters going out 5 to 6 weeks later. But don't wait until the last minute either, as there are often delays in obtaining transcripts and letters of recommendation!
 
Complete the online application
 
A cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better is required. The GRE General Test is required. A score of 80th percentile or higher on each of the three subtests is desired. You need not take a GRE Subject Test, but  are welcome to do so.
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for candidates from non-English speaking countries who have not studied in the United States for at least one year. The minimum accepted score is 100.
 
If your GPA or one of your test scores is below the minimum, you are not automatically disqualified from consideration. We consider the strength of the overall application, including your educational and professional background; statement of purpose; and letters of recommendation. We also consider, and LMC and ID require, your internet project portfolio. You are welcome to but not required to include a portfolio URL if applying through Interactive Computing or Psychology.
