MLIS

Application Process

Visit the MyGrad online application and create a login ID and password.

Retain your login ID and password, as you will need them to:

  • Save a partially completed application
  • Pay the application fee ($85 payable by debit or credit card)
  • Monitor the submission of recommendations and test scores (if applicable)
  • Check the status of your application

Once you have paid the fee, you will be unable to make further changes to your application with the exception of letters of recommendation.

Application Fee and Fee Waiver

The application fee is $85 USD, payable online by debit or credit card. Qualified applicants can request a fee waiver through the Graduate School on the ‘Pay fee and submit application’ section of the MyGrad application. The iSchool is not able to waive the application fee.

Reapplication Procedures

Some individuals apply to the MLIS program more than once. These individuals will use the same process as any other applicant. Applying to the program multiple times does not increase or decrease your chances of being admitted. Each application cycle is a fresh start.
