Overview of the Application Process
Once an application is received, an automated email will be sent to the email address provided on the application. If something is missing that is needed to complete the application, we will send a follow-up email.
Each application is thoroughly reviewed by the Admissions Committee before a final decision is rendered. We have no set “formulas” we follow when we review applications. Countless hours are devoted to the task of ensuring that every application is reviewed thoroughly and that every applicant has received full consideration in the admissions process.
Application Processing Time
Application review typically can take up to 4 weeks from the date the application is received. Processing time may be extended if certain required documents are missing. Therefore, we recommend that ALL documents are sent in one package/envelope to avoid any unnecessary delays.
Your acceptance letter and I-20 Form will be sent to you via courier.
If you apply with a paper application, you must submit a non-refundable Application Fee of $50.00. The payment must be a bank check or money order drawn from a U.S. bank. Please make the check payable to the University of Bridgeport. Do not send cash.
When applying online you will be asked to pay the $50 application fee using a valid credit card upon completion of your online application form.
Your application will not be processed without the application fee.
The application fee is mandatory and cannot be waived.

Application Fee for Doctoral Level Programs $75
