How To Apply

We’ll Help You Ace the Application Process

At McDaniel, we make the Graduate Studies admission process straightforward and convenient. We are here to answer your questions and guide you along the way.

First, check out the general requirements and then review the requirements specific to your program. Admission materials are accepted and processed throughout the year, but we recommend that you submit your application and supporting materials well in advance of the start of the intended semester of entry.


Submit the nonrefundable $75.00 application fee.  McDaniel alums, please be sure to include your student ID number on the application to waive this fee. An automatic e-mail with your payment confirmation # will be sent to the e-mail address you provide on the online payment form. 


Complete an online application or print an application to fill out and mail to us. Be sure to include your payment confirmation # or McDaniel ID number to activate processing. 


Forward your official college transcripts to us at McDaniel College, Graduate Admissions, 2 College Hill, Westminster, MD 21157-4390. Official transcripts can also be submitted electronically to gradadms@mcdaniel.edu. (If your undergraduate degree is from McDaniel College, skip this step.)
