How to Apply

Admissions Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree from a college or university that holds regional accreditation from a recognized accrediting agency (e.g., Southern Association of Colleges and Schools—SACS)
  • 3.00 GPA or higher in prior college work, as required by the Graduate School
  • For International Students: Minimum passing score of 100 on the TOEFL, and an official, course-by-course evaluation from an accredited foreign credential evaluation service required for applicants with non-U.S. degrees. Please note that the MAT degree is a Distance Education program, so students on university-sponsored visas are not eligible for this program. Please contact the Office of International Services with any questions (see http://internationalservices.ncsu.edu/).
  • Up to 12 credit hours with a grade of “B” or better can be transferred into the MAT degree program (either from NDS studies at NC State or from partner institutions). See the NCSU Graduate School policies at  https://www.ncsu.edu/grad/catalog/transfer-credits.html
