Applications for admission are accepted year round. Students may begin the Master's and Graduate Certificate in either the fall, spring semester or summer session. International applicants can only apply for the fall or spring semester to accommodate the need for full-time enrollment.
Students may enter the program as a Master’s degree student, a certificate student, or as someone who simply wants to take a course for their own professional development (non-degree student).

Inter-institutional enrollment is a program that allows qualifying students at University System of Maryland (USM) institutions to take selected courses at other USM campuses while only paying tuition at their home school. Through the program, students register for courses at both their home and host institutions, but are billed only by their home school. At the end of the semester, the student's credits and grades from the host institution are transferred to their home institution. This differs from standard transfer coursework in that both credits and grades transfer. The deadline for registering for courses at another institution is two weeks before the start of the semester.
