  • Two completed recommendation forms from people with knowledge of the candidate’s academic, professional, and/or work performance and potential

*Meredith College’s Industrial-Organizational Psychology Masters Program is accepting alternatives for GRE exam scores for the Fall 2025 cohort for those with a 3.0 undergraduate GPA and above. If you meet the GPA criteria and do not plan to submit current GRE scores (taken within the last 5 years) as part of your application, please submit one of the following alternatives along with your online application: 

  • Official scores from another graduate placement exam, including GMAT, MAT, & LSAT (scores from a test not listed here must be approved by IO Psychology department – please contact directly for eligibility); 
  • GRE scores from an exam taken more than five years ago; 
  • An additional letter of recommendation (submit 3 letters in total); one recommender must be familiar with and able to comment on quantitative skills, abilities, or aptitude.

Admission decisions are based on a combination of factors, including, but not limited to, academic performance, professional and/or research experience, ability, program fit, and test scores. Applicants may be contacted for an interview to assess for program fit.

Applications will be reviewed monthly beginning in mid-late January, with a priority deadline of March 1. Decisions are typically issued beginning in late March/early April.
