Rackham Admissions and COVID-19

Rackham Graduate School understands there are many questions related to the admissions process during this global health crisis. We’re working hard to anticipate questions and provide answers. Explore our frequently asked questions page.

Rackham Applicants Currently Studying at Iranian Universities

In light of the recent protests in Iran, prospective graduate students studying at Iranian universities will likely experience substantial disruptions to their ability to submit their graduate school applications and complete their courses of study in a timely manner. Nevertheless, Rackham would like to provide as much support as possible for these applicants. Learn more.

Applicants must first consult the program website for degree options and specific requirements for admission. The program website is the official source of information for application requirements. Programs establish their own requirements and timeline for the application review. If the graduate program website is different from Rackham’s website, follow the graduate program’s website instructions. Review the Programs of Study page for program website and contact information, including dual degree and certificate options.

The graduate program will make a decision on your application and notify both you and Rackham. If you are recommended for admission, Rackham will confirm that you meet the minimum admission requirements and finalize the offer. Review the Admission and Matriculation Policy for eligibility. Applicants are not admitted until they receive an email from Rackham with the offer of admission.
