MFA Application Checklist
Application to the UTPA Graduate School
The graduate school has its own standards for admission, separate from the requirements of the MFA program. Begin your application using the Embark program on the Graduate Office main page www.utpa.edu/gradschool and hit “Apply Now”. Feel free to request advice from one of the MFA advisors before officially submitting your application. If your GPA is below the minimum, submit your writing sample to the MFA Admissions Committee anyway; if you’re a good writer it may be possible for you to get admission on probationary status.
Complete all parts of the Embark process, including payment of the $35 application fee, and submit the application.
