MAS-GIS Application Requirements

Complete the official Graduate Admissions application online. As part of that process, you must also submit:

  • Personal Statement. Personal statement must address interest and commitment to the MAS-GIS program including a description of relevant academic and/or professional experience and overall interest in GIS. Personal statement should be no longer than two pages.
  • Official transcripts from all degree-awarding institutions. ASU accepts both electronic and physical transcripts.  Electronic transcripts are only accepted from E-Scrip, Parchment, and National Student Clearinghouse. Hard copy transcripts should be sent to Graduate Admissions.
  • English Proficiency for non-native English speakers (Submit TOEFL to university code 4007; department code 99)
  • Letters of recommendation (2). The application will prompt you to provide email addresses for two letters of recommendation. The recommenders should be from academic professionals or professional colleagues capable of evaluating your abilities, accomplishments, and professional potential. ASU will contact your recommenders at the email address provided.
  • Resume

Incomplete applications are not guaranteed to be reviewed. Please allow sufficient time for submission and processing of relevant test scores, transcripts, and letters of recommendation. Applications will be considered for Fall admission on a rolling basis until the program is full.
