University of New Mexico uses two types of application processes: the online application and a paper application. Both processes can be accessed at http://www.unm.edu/grad/admissions/admissions.html . By using the online application, your application will be received much faster and processed more quickly than if you apply by paper. If you choose paper, print the application materials from the website
Three letters of recommendation and a letter of intent must be sent directly to the WRP Office. Admission deadlines are November 15 for the spring semester and July 15 for the fall semester. Only former MWR students seeking readmission are admitted for the summer semester. Early application is encouraged for best consideration.
The admission requirements for the MWR degree program are:
Although students should normally satisfy all prerequisites before they can be admitted to the program, students missing one of the prerequisites may be admitted on the condition that they complete the prerequisite as soon as possible. A student missing more than two prerequisites will not be considered for admission. Students satisfying prerequisites while an MWR student must take each course for a letter grade and obtain a grade of B or better.
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required for admission.
Former MWR students who have not been enrolled for three or more consecutive semesters will be dropped from the degree program by OGS. Application forms for readmission are available on the OGS web site (http://www.unm.edu/~grad/admissions/admitcrit.html#Anchor-Readmissio-44968). The application fee must be repaid. Readmission is not automatic.
Admission can be deferred for up to one calendar year. Students must submit a written request to OGS and the WRP requesting deferral.
International students (non-U.S. citizens) are welcome in the MWR program, but must apply through the UNM Office of International Admissions.
