Admissions Standards

Masters Program Admissions

Please visit the NPS Academic Catalog for Masters Program Admissions Criteria for Active Duty Military, International Students, Civilian Employees of the US Government, and Scholarship for Service students.

Doctoral Program Admissions

Please visit the NPS Academic Catalog for the latest Doctoral Program admissions criteria and information. 

Dual Degree Requirements

A dual-degree program is one in which a student pursues two distinct master's degrees simultaneously. Any program which can lead to the award of two Master's Degrees is, in its entirety, a SPECIAL PROGRAM and it must be approved by the Academic Council. For more info, review the NPS Academic Council Policy Manual.

Calculating Academic Profile Codes

The NPS Admissions office evaluates applicants based on three criteria. The result is the assignment of an Academic Profile Code (APC). This is a three-digit code, which summarizes pertinent portions of a student's prior college performance. Read more about APCs on the Academic Catalog website.
