Step 1: Complete your application online. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to contact us.

Step 2: Submit the following documents:

  • An official copy of their college/university transcript.
  • Two letters of recommendation.
  • A writing sample:
    • The paper must have been written in the last 5 years.
    • We recommend choosing a paper where you’ve been asked to analyze an issue, draw conclusions, support an opinion or generate an argument. We’re looking for a critical analysis of a concept or issue, and one that integrates and cites source material.
    • We recommend choosing a paper that is 3-5 pages in length, double-spaced, 12 point font.
  • A personal essay explaining why you’d like to attend Hiram College, why you’re choosing the MAIS program, and what your goals are after graduation. The essay should be 2-4 pages in length.

If additional materials are required, one of our admission representatives will contact you shortly after submission.
