Graduate Admissions for the Masters in Emergency Management Online

Students applying to the Masters in Emergency Management program must submit the following:

  1. A completed online application form, accessed by clicking “Apply Now” at the bottom of this window.
  2. Official transcripts from all undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools you have attended. Electronic transcripts will be accepted from institutions that no longer mail transcripts. Transcripts must indicate the degree earned. Please Note: Students enrolled in undergraduate study who have not completed their bachelor’s degree can submit transcripts to date for admissions consideration. If accepted, we ask that you provide a final official transcript from your school once you finish your degree. Transcripts must be in a sealed envelope from the issuing institution and sent to:
    Attn: Jaime Parlato
    University of New Haven
    Office of Graduate Admissions
    300 Boston Post Road
    West Haven, CT 06516
  3. Two recommendations from academic or professional sources. These sources should evaluate your academic qualifications and potential for success as a graduate student in the online Master of Science in Emergency Management program at the University. You must provide contact information for both recommenders during the online application process and they will receive email requests with instructions for providing the recommendations. If you prefer to not use the electronic system, you may obtain original letters of recommendation by downloading and providing our recommendation form to your recommenders, who may email the forms directly to OnlineGrad@newhaven.edu or mail them (with signature across the seal) to:
    Attn: Jaime Parlato

  2. The Graduate School strongly encourages you to provide a brief personal statement (no more than 500 words) describing your interest in the online Master of Science in Emergency Management degree program and why you would make a good candidate for admission to the University of New Haven.
