June 11, 2010, Newsletter Issue #212: Getting a head start before you are accepted

Tip of the Week

Did you know that many universities will allow you to take a limited number of graduate courses in geographic information systems before you are formally accepted to their programs? If you've missed the application deadline, need more time to get financial aid together or just aren't sure whether the program is for you, check with the admissions office to see if you can take a course while you're waiting. The surprising answer is often yes, and the courses may count towards your eventual master's degree in geographic information systems. You may also want to consider taking a few undergraduate-level courses during this time to bring your skills up to date or complete requirements for the geographic information systems program for which you've applied.
