Admission Requirements

The following materials should be submitted to the UALR Graduate School when applying to the program:

  • Undergraduate transcript(s). Applicants are expected to have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited university. A 3.0 grade point average is generally expected and 2.7 GPA is required for conditional admission.

Applicants for admission to the M.S. in Sport Management program are evaluated on a competitive basis by the faculty, and acceptance is conferred to the most qualified applicants. Fulfilling admission requirements is necessary to be considered for admission but in no way guarantees acceptance into the program. Students may be admitted in one of the admission status categories outlined in the Graduate Catalog.

Application for admission should be received by the UALR Graduate School by March 15 for students anticipating fall matriculation and October 15 for spring matriculation in order to get full consideration for admittance. Applications received after these dates will be considered as long as program openings remain available. Students who do not meet the above requirements for admission may apply for a faculty review of their qualifications.
