Please keep the statement to two pages in length and include your name on each page.
Letters of Recommendation - Please submit three letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with your academic and professional abilities. At least one letter should be from an academic reference, preferably a former professor. Please follow the instructions in ApplyYourself for submission of these letters. However, if you elect not to use the online ApplyYourself application, please have your referees send letters directly to the MIAGE office in a signed and sealed envelope. They should include email and mailing addresses so we may verify their information.
Current Resume or Curriculum Vitae - Submit a current resume or curriculum vitae. Please show all previous work, academic courses, community and extracurricular activities.
GRE, GMAT or LSAT scores - In addition to the GRE, GMAT or LSAT score reported on the online application, official GRE, GMAT or LSAT scores must also be received by the MIAGE office by the deadlines above.
TOEFL Scores - If applicable, TOEFL test scores must also be received by the deadlines above.
Academic Transcripts - All applicants will be asked to upload an unofficial copy of their academic transcripts when completing the application online. Current students or graduates of the University of Utah will not be required to submit their U of U transcripts. If you are admitted to MIAGE, you will be required to provide an official copy of your transcripts, sent directly from your previous school to the Graduate Admissions office at:
The University of Utah
201 S 1460 E
Room 250 S SSB
Salt Lake City, UT 84112
Transcripts submitted for admission become the property of the University of Utah and cannot be returned to the applicant. Failure to list all schools previously attended or making false or misleading statements on the application may result in loss of credit and/or cancellation of admission status.
Please ensure you have also reviewed our Admissions page thoroughly before applying.
We do not require an interview for admission, however, students often find a visit to the school to be a very useful tool in their decision to apply and/or attend The University of Utah. Contact the program manager for more information or to make arrangements for a visit.
Readmission & Applying for a Leave of Absence
An offer of acceptance is valid only for the semester the applicant is admitted. If an applicant does not atttend during his/her admitted term, the applicant must resubmit an admissions application and fee before the application deadline for the semester he/she wishes to begin.
Once admitted and enrolled, graduate students are required by Graduate School policy to maintain continuous registration during the academic year of fall and spring semesters. If a graduate student must "stop out", he/she should file the appropriate paperwork requesting an official leave of absence through his/her academic department. Students failing to maintain continuous registration and who have not been granted an official leave of absence will be discontinued in their graduate program. Graduate School policy requires that such students must apply for readmission into their academic program.
