Admissions Petition Process

Information regarding admission into the Graduate School

 

Applicants who do not meet the minimum qualifications for admission into the Graduate School may petition for admission consideration. To petition for admission consideration, applicants should submit a letter to the graduate admissions office (via email at grad@jbu.edu) explaining why they believe they will be successful as a graduate student at JBU.

Please address your letter to one of the following individuals:

  • Mr. Kai Togami, Program Director
    JBU Graduate Business
    2000 West University Street
    Siloam Springs, AR 72761

  • Dr. John Carmack, Program Director
    JBU Graduate Counseling
    2000 West University Street
    Siloam Springs, AR 72761

  • Dr. Connie Matchell, Program Director
    JBU Graduate Education
    2000 West University Street
    Siloam Springs, AR 72761

  • Dr. Richard Ellis, Program Director
    JBU Graduate Higher Education
    2000 West University Street
    Siloam Springs, AR 72761

  • Mr. Todd Goehner, Program Director
    JBU Collaborative Design Program
    2000 West University Street
    Siloam Springs, AR 72761

Your appeal letter should be written in formal business communication style; the quality of your letter will be one indication of your academic ability. Your letter should include information concerning any circumstances that led to the admission deficiency (low GPA, low test score, etc.) and explain why you believe you will be successful in the Graduate School. It can be helpful to indicate examples of personal achievement or growth that represent your potential to address the academic demands of a graduate program.

Appeals should be submitted at least 14 days prior to the admission/registration deadline for the semester for which you are applying.
