  • Official transcript from all academic institutions attended
  • Two years’ relevant work experience
  • Current resume
  • A personal statement
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • $30 Application fee

Plan of Study

Courses begin in January 2014. Students may begin their program in January, May, or August. Courses are offered year-round and will typically be taught during the evening to accommodate working students.

Students may complete the MPSL Program in as few as four semesters, but will be allowed up to five years to complete the program. All courses are charged on a per credit basis, and Valparaiso University is happy to work with students who receive employer tuition benefits.

Financial Considerations

Tuition for courses beginning in January 2014 and May 2014 is $795 per credit hour.
