Welcome to Granite State College

If you're starting a Graduate Program, it's important to stay organized. Here's a checklist to help you get started!

Talk to an Advisor

Advisors guide students through the application process. They can answer questions about degree program options, connect you with the director of your chosen program, and help you with financial aid. Contact us to set up an appointment in person or virtually.


Prepare Your Application Materials

When completing your admissions application, you'll be asked to submit a current resume, two professional or academic references, and a 500-1,000 word personal statement. Plan ahead by updating your resume and confirming the contact details for your references so you're ready to enter this information within the application. You'll also want to craft your personal statement, which should describe professional goals, aspirations, motivation for applying for the degree, and relevant formal or informal experiences. The statement is evaluated on applicant’s writing and its content alignment with the program’s purpose and outcomes.

Apply Online for Free

Complete the admissions application online with no application fee. If you have questions, an advisor will be able to help you navigate step-by-step through the application.

Request Your Transcripts

Make arrangements with the institution that granted your bachelor’s degree to send your transcripts to Granite State College. If you earned college credit from additional institutions, please reach out to them, too. You must have a conferred bachelor’s degree with a 3.0 GPA.

Apply for Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available to help make college costs more affordable. Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and use the Granite State College code 031013. If you have questions, our expert financial aid team will be able to help you navigate step-by-step through the FAFSA.
