A written offer of admission is made by the Graduate School to all accepted applicants and specifies the date of entrance (semester or session). The offer of admission is also a permit to register for courses. Graduate credit for courses taken at UMES will not be given unless students have been admitted to the UMES Graduate School.
Individuals whose original offers of admission have lapsed, or lapsed after one requested deferment of the date of entrance (good up to a 12-month period), must submit a new application and fee if they want to be reconsidered for admission at a later date.
A student can be admitted to only one graduate program at any one time. There are no dual degree programs at the graduate level. Applications may be sent to more than one graduate program for review, but only one offer of admission to one degree program will be granted
