Candidates for the M.S. in Rehabilitation will be expected to have completed an undergraduate degree in a rehabilitation-related discipline and/or have a strong background in the social and biological sciences, and a course in introductory statistics. A full-time student can complete the program in three or four semesters. As with all programs, the Graduate College allows students to petition to transfer up to 12 hours of coursework completed prior to admittance to the department. Any approved graduate courses taken on campus in the summer immediately prior to admission count toward the degree and do not have to be transferred.
