Online MBA Admission
Candidates for admission to the MBA program should submit a complete application portfolio at least 45 days prior to the start of the term. Admitted students may begin the program at the beginning of any term. Admission decisions for regular graduate standing are based on a review of the following materials in the candidate's file:
- A completed application form and non-refundable application fee
- Evidence of an interview with an admission counselor
- Official transcripts showing a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution. Normally, a grade point average of approximately 3.0 or higher in upper division undergraduate work is expected
- Two letters of recommendation
- Personal statement
- Test scores: Applicants whose undergraduate records do not satisfy the above criteria must include Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores in their admission portfolio. The GMAT may be waived for candidates who present an official transcript of previous college work from a regionally accredited college or university reflecting any one of the following criteria:
- an undergraduate, upper division grade point average of 3.0 or higher; or
- a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher for the most recent 60 credits of study consisting of any of the following: graduate course work, upper division post baccalaureate course work (exclusive of extension or continuing education work), and upper division undergraduate course work; or
- a minimum of nine credits of graduate course work completed and a 3.50 grade point average; or
- a previously earned master's degree.
Note: All applicants who have completed their undergraduate work at an institution outside of the U.S. must submit GMAT and TOEFL scores and have their transcripts evaluated for equivalency to a U.S. bachelor's degree.
