Application Procedures

Applying to SFA is the first step in becoming a graduate student. Some programs require a secondary application directly to the program. Review the requirements of each program, attending to their specific application deadlines and requirements.

Request your bachelor degree conferring university or college send your official transcripts by email to the Admissions Data Center. If a Graduate Management Admission Test or Graduate Record Examination are required, schedule your exam and have your scores reported to SFA. SFA's Testing Center might be an option for an on-campus testing location.

As student applications and documents are received, students can expect verification email communication with further instructions on accessing the mySFA account. The mySFA portal view will give you a snapshot on the progression of your application along with any needed checklist items. MySFA is the official communication method of the university.
