Becoming a Doctoral Student at Ashland University
The admissions process for our doctoral programs is designed to recruit the highest quality professionals, representing a culturally diverse population. A comprehensive system, including both qualitative and quantitative measures, is used to assess personal characteristics, academic skills, communications and leadership. Acceptance into the doctoral program is by cohort and is based upon a competitive evaluation of applications.
All cohorts officially begin in May of each year. However, prospective students can apply when it is most convenient, allowing students to begin taking cognate courses if they prefer to get a head start.
