Graduate Program Application Requirements
For specific information on IMC program application and admissions requirements, please visit http://imc.wvu.edu/admissions
Program Application Test RequirementsAdmission requirements to the IMC certificate track are the same as for the master’s degree track. For certificate students who may be interested in applying courses to the full master’s degree: University policy states that a maximum of six credits obtained by a nondegree student can be applied toward any degree. The IMC and DMC graduate certificate programs are five classes/15 credits, and our master’s degree in IMC is 11 classes/33 credits. If you complete the IMC or DMC graduate certificate, only six of the 15 credits would apply toward our IMC master’s degree. If you start in either of the certificate programs and complete six hours or less before changing over to the full master’s degree, this policy will not affect you. (Note: currently there is an eight year maximum time frame for graduate work completion.)
