The most important part of your application is a sample of your
creative work. Low residency programs base admission decisions
primarily on a written sample of the prospective student’s creative
work submitted in the genre the student intends to study.
Supporting materials that accompany an application (including
transcripts, letters of recommendation, and a personal statement
identifying the student’s reasons for pursuing graduate study) are
used to help consider the other positive attributes a student might
contribute to the university and program communities
Admission to Saint Leo's Master of Arts in Creative Writing
program is a simple, straightforward process. Applicants should
submit the following materials 60 days before the beginning of the
term in which they wish to enroll.
All applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally
accredited college or university, with a minimum GPA of 3.25 on a
4-point scale; students not meeting this standard may be admitted
on a probationary basis at the discretion of the director.
Completed applications will remain active for two years.
Conditional admission as non-degree-seeking students may be granted
only for up to six semester hours of graduate work.
