We welcome your application for admission to the Graduate Division of Valparaiso University.

The Graduate Division admits students that demonstrate the ability and motivation to succeed in an academically challenging environment.

Two ways of applying
You have the option of completing your application online and submitting it electronically or downloading the application in Adobe PDF format. When entering your application data online please do not press the "Return" key until all information has been entered. You may press the "Tab" key to move from a question box to another.

The PDF applications come packaged with all of the necessary forms, including the forms for submitting letters of recommendation. If you are submitting you application online, you will need to get the forms for submitting letters of recommendation from the forms page.

Recommendation Forms
All prospective degree-seeking students must submit recommendations, although the content requested and number required varies by program. Students applying for the School Counseling, School Psychology, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, or Community Counseling programs should note that they are required to submit the provided recommendation forms, which may be accompanied by a letter if the recommender wishes to elaborate. Master of Education and LEAPS prospects also have specific forms that must be submitted. Students applying to other programs have the option of submitting either the provided forms or individualized letters, although recommenders are encouraged to address the content areas listed in the forms.

Recommendation forms are available as both PDF files and secure online forms on the "Forms" section of the Graduate School website. The secure recommendation forms must be initiated by the prospective student before the recommenders are contacted. Paper versions are also available at the Graduate School office.
