Admissions Committee; and (7) attend an orientation session.

 

Completed application forms should be returned at least twenty (20) days prior to the beginning of the term in which the applicant expects to enroll.  All materials, completed forms, transcripts, and test scores, along with a $50.00 non-refundable Application Fee, should be sent directly to the Office of Graduate Admissions, Cumberland University, One Cumberland Square, Lebanon, Tennessee 37087-3408.  All materials become the property of Cumberland University and will not be returned.
