Apply for AdmissionHow to Apply

Admissions decisions for the Ph.D. program are based on the following:

  • Completion of the Indiana Tech Doctoral Application.
  • A $50 application fee.  (Indiana Tech alums are permitted to bypass this requirement.)
  • Official transcripts from the regionally-accredited colleges or universities at which you earned your bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Transcripts should be sent to the following address:
    • Indiana Tech, ATTN: Ph.D. Program, 1600 E. Washington Blvd., Fort Wayne, IN 46803
    • Electronic delivery is permitted if sent directly from the awarding university via official means.  In this case, please have them delivered to phd@indianatech.edu.  
  • An original essay addressing the candidate’s interest in the program and intended academic and professional goals. The desired length is 500 to 1,000 words, and use of APA style is preferred.
  • A current résumé (or curriculum vitae) including educational record, employment history and relevant accomplishments, publications, presentations, and professional contributions.
  • An interview conducted by the program director.

Once all of your materials have been received, you will be contacted by the assistant director for a brief introduction. You will then be scheduled for a 45-minute interview with the program director.  This can be conducted in-person or by phone.

Upon completion of the interview, all applicant materials will be forwarded to the admissions committee for a final review. Applicants are typically informed of an admissions decision within a week of their interview.

Please contact phd@indianatech.edu or 800.288.1766 ext. 2236 with any questions regarding the admissions process.
