GSAS Admissions

Project True

Fordham University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) is a selective school with a population of 493 master's and 345 doctoral students enrolled in more than 40 graduate degree and advanced certificate offerings that include traditional, semi-professional, and professional programs in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.

Our Admissions Team is committed to advancing the GSAS mission, which fosters the cultivation of knowledge, wisdom, and a deeper understanding of the human condition. We prepare our students for teaching and leadership in a global society, and welcome learners from diverse religious, economic, and cultural backgrounds into full participation in a scholarly endeavor.

The Admissions Process

GSAS utilizes a holistic or “whole file” admissions approach in reviewing applications for matriculation into its degree and advanced certificate programs. This approach helps ensure the consideration of a wide range of applicant qualities, and takes into account a broad base of evidence in rendering admissions decisions.

We consider your application to be complete and ready for review only when it includes a submitted online application and all required supplemental materials. Please consult the How to Apply and Application Deadlines pages of the GSAS web site for more information on the various elements that constitute a completed application, and be sure to review the admissions requirements of your program of interest.

Application Fee - Waived for New Fall 2021 Applicants

 The $70 application fee is currently waived for new applicants for  admission for the fall 2021 entry terms. The waiver is automatically applied upon submission of your application.
