Students who do not have the requisite background in Economics (see 3 above) may apply to be admitted in a non-matriculated status. This status usually requires the students to take specific courses determined by the Master's Committee at the time of the application review. These courses do not count toward the Master's degree. Upon completion of these courses with grades of at least 3.0 (B) or better, the student may then apply for regular admission into the Economics Master's Program.
The Economics Master's Program Admissions Committee will reviews applications for entrance into the program only for Fall Semester. The application department deadline for Fall admission is April 1st. Applicants will receive notice of acceptance or non-acceptance from the Economics Admission Committee on or before June 1st. The earlier your completed application is received in the department, the earlier you will have a decision on admittance from the admission committee.
To ensure that GRE scores reach the Economics Department for Fall admittance in a timely manner, plan to take the exam no later than February 15th of the year of application. It takes ETS approximately six weeks to release the results of GRE scores. These results must reach the Economics department no later than April 1st for Fall admission. Please provide ETS with the following codes to ensure accurate delivery when taking the exam:
University of Utah: 4853
Economics Department: 1801
