- An up-to-date resume
For reference, supporting documents may also be uploaded via your Status Page, which will become available after submission of the application.
Note about transcripts: Transcripts from every post-secondary institution attended (not just the degree granting institution) must be sent to the university. Although the Office of Graduate Admission may review your application for admission using unofficial transcript copies, admitted students must provide all official copies prior to the start of the semester. Please note that official transcripts are only accepted in one of the following ways:
- Electronically: Pace University participates with several electronic transcripts networks: Credentials, Parchment Exchange, National Student Clearing House, and eSCRIP-SAFE. Whenever possible, Pace prefers to receive transcripts electronically. Confirm with the prior institution to determine if they participate in any of these networks. If a send-to email address is required, please use email@example.com.
- Via Mail: Hard copies of transcripts should be addressed to:
Pace University Graduate Admissions Office, GLI
1 Pace Plaza
New York, NY 10038
Official transcripts must be received by Pace from their corresponding institutions or one of the third-party transcript networks listed above, not applicants themselves.
Note about previous/maiden names: In the application field “Maiden or Other Last Names Used,” please indicate any former last names that your transcripts may arrive under. Failure to do so will result in the delayed processing of your documents.
Note about English proficiency: Applicants with degrees from non-English-speaking colleges must take the TOEFL iBT Test and submit a score of at least 88. NOTE: If you have taken the TOEFL within the last two years and passed with a score of at least 88, you can submit this score in lieu of retaking the TOEFL.
