This course is designed to familiarize you with the online technology environment, provided by Canvas (LMS), and introduce you to professors, your success coach, and staff at Bryant. Online study skills, time management skills, and self-directed learning will also be addressed to ensure your success.

In addition to the application form, you will need to submit a statement of objectives, a current resume, as well as a letter of recommendation, official transcripts from all colleges/universities you have attended, and your application fee (waived for Bryant alumni).

An international applicant is defined as any person that requires a student visa to study in the United States. International applicants are eligible to apply to any graduate program, provided they have successfully completed the equivalent of a United States bachelor’s degree and have the appropriate diplomas and/or satisfactory results on transcripts or leaving examinations from the country in which the degree was earned. International applicants must complete all program-specific application requirements as well as all additional international application requirements outlined below.

All applicants whose primary language is not English (or for whom English is not one of their primary languages) are required to submit proof of satisfactory English proficiency. Exceptions will be made if the applicant completed an undergraduate or graduate degree at a regionally accredited institution within the U.S., or if the language of instruction for an earned undergraduate or graduate degree was entirely in English.
