Admission Information - College Student Affairs

Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania's School Counseling Graduate Program

Applicants must satisfy the general admission requirements of the School of Graduate Studies.  Standardized tests are not required for admission to the College Student Affairs program.

A complete application includes:

  •   A completed graduate school application.
  •   An official undergraduate transcript (minimum 3.0 undergraduate GPA for full admission; provisional admission may be possible with a GPA between 2.7 and 2.99).
  •   A written personal statement explaining your reasons for pursuing a graduate degree in college student affairs, your career goals, and how these goals align with the Bloomsburg University CSA program.
  •   A current resume.
  •   Two letters of recommendation - one from a person who can address the applicant’s ability to complete graduate level work and one from someone who can speak to the applicant’s potential as a student affairs educator.
  •   An interview with a CSA faculty member to discuss your professional goals, evaluate your academic record, and clarify program philosophy and requirements.

The application process is competitive and applicants must have a 3.0 or higher GPA for full consideration. Applicants with a 2.7 GPA and above may be considered for provisional admission. Completed applications are reviewed as they are received. However, early application is preferred, particularly for candidates interested in a graduate assistantship.
