Application should be made in the fall of the year before the student plans to start his/her studies, by submitting a letter to American University Department of Public Administration stating an intention to apply under the Stetson-American University MPA linkage agreement. With the letter include the American University graduate application form, the essay, and a note that the letters of recommendation, GRE scores, and an official transcript are being sent under separate cover.
