Application and Admission Information for Graduate Business Programs
KEY APPLICATION DATES FOR GRADUATE BUSINESS PROGRAMS
Round 1: Fall Priority Consideration (Full-time MBA and MAcc): JANUARY 15
Round 2: Fall On-time (Full-time MBA and MAcc): MARCH 1
Round 3: Fall Late (Full-time MBA and MAcc): JUNE 1
Please note for full-time applicants: Admission decisions are usually made beginning in early-March, however, full-time accelerated MBA applicants are encouraged to apply by the Round 1 date to receive priority consideration for merit-based financial assistance. MAcc applicants are encouraged to apply by the Round 1 date to receive early consideration. Those applying after the Round 2 date will be considered on a rolling basis generally through June 1 each year as time and space in the programs permit. Please contact the MBA Program Office to determine if spaces are still available after June 1 for all MBA and the MAcc programs.
Decisions regarding admission and any awards of merit-based financial assistance (i.e. scholarship and/or graduate assistantship) are made on a rolling basis usually within 3-4 weeks of application completion. You will be notified in writing immediately regarding your application and any merit-based award decisons. MBA applicants should also review the MBA Admission page for important information about MBA prerequisites.
Application and Supplemental Documents
Your completed application portfolio must be submitted before the Graduate Business Admissions Committee can render a final decision on your application. The required forms and documents include:
- A completed Graduate Business program online application
- Official transcripts from all undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools attended
- Two letters of recommendation (recommended, but not required)
- An official Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) Score*
- A current resume of related professional, leadership and other relevant activities
- International applicants should review the International MBA applicants page for additional document requirements
You should submit a completed application and return all supplemental documents by the appropriate application dates. Applications received after the posted decision dates will be considered on a rolling, space-available basis; therefore, a review of your application and the availability of merit-based financial assistance (full-time MBA and MAcc Programs only) cannot be guaranteed if your application is received after the Round 2 date.
