How do I apply to graduate schools online?

Applying to online graduate degree programs is very similar to applying to traditional graduate degree programs. Although online Ph.D. programs are more stringent than online Master's programs, prospective students will generally be required to submit letters of recommendation, GRE scores, personal statements, resumes and all undergraduate transcripts.

When applying to online graduate programs, individuals should check that they are regionally accredited as well as accredited by the necessary organizations, such as the American Psychological Association, to ensure proper licensure.

Because online graduate programs' admissions criteria vary so greatly, prospective students should look up each individual program's admissions requirements.
