To be admitted, an applicant must have a bachelor’s degree with a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 2.7, and meet the conditions of the following formulae for the GRE exam:
GPA + (0.15 x GRE [Verbal]) > 23.4
GPA + (0.15 x GRE [Quant]) > 23.4

Arrange for two "Recommendation for Graduate Study" forms to be completed and submitted to the Graduate School by your undergraduate advisers or other persons who are able to judge your potential as a graduate student.
However, under "Non-Degree Seeking" status, an applicant may be granted conditional admission status if he or she submits unofficial documents for review and meets the criteria for regular admission. The Graduate Bulletin offers a full explanation of requirements for "Non-Degree Seeking" status.
