Applying to Wagner

If you’re accepted to the BA-MUP track, you are not guaranteed admittance to the Wagner graduate program. You must complete the graduate application in your final undergraduate year by the priority deadline at the end of the fall semester. 

As part of the admissions process, you may be asked to participate in an interview to help us better understand your candidacy which may not be fully captured in your application materials. If invited to interview, it then becomes a requirement for admission and will be held early- to mid- February. 

Please see our admissions website for more information about the graduate application.


Wagner graduate students come from a variety of professional backgrounds - many have several years of substantial experience in public service before starting a Wagner graduate degree. We believe that this real-world experience strongly enriches the Wagner education in and outside the classroom. As a result, our graduate admissions team may accept you into the MUP program with the requirement that you defer 1 year to gain full-time professional experience in a public service field.

You may also choose to defer your enrollment for up to 2 years in order to gain additional experience.


Pursuing a graduate dual degree is an investment in the future and a serious commitment of time and money. All Bachelor’s-Master’s track applicants will be considered for scholarships and funding as part of the graduate application. You can also apply for the the Georgina and Charlotte Bloomberg Public Service Fellows Program in the graduate application - a full-tuition scholarship opportunity.
