Admission Classifications

For full-degree seeking students
  • Applicants must have earned four-year undergraduate degrees. A specific undergraduate major is not required.
  • Degree-seeking students must have a competitive GMAT score.
  • Degree-seeking students must have GPA of 3.0 or higher for all previous college work. Non-degree seeking students must have either a 3.0 GPA overall or a 3.0 GPA in the last 60 hours of academic work. 
  • Applicants must demonstrate proficiency in mathematics, the use of computers, and communication skills (both written and oral) through academic coursework, professional experience or GMAT scores.
  • International applicants must score at least 577 (230 computer-based; 90 Internet-based) on TOEFL or a minimum score of 6.5 on the IELTS exam.
For non-degree seeking students
Applicants who have completed undergraduate degrees with either a 3.0 GPA overall or a 3.0 GPA in the last 60 hours of academic work, but who have not taken the GMAT, may be considered for acceptance as non-degree seeking students.

In this case, a student may take no more than eight hours of 600-level graduate work, and will be required to submit GMAT scores before continuing enrollment.

Acceptance as a non-degree-seeking student does not assure acceptance into the program, regardless of the course grades received. Once the GMAT score has been received, the student’s admission status will be re-evaluated. If, at that time, the student meets the criteria for acceptance, the status will be changed to full-degree seeking.

Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for University or federal financial aid. International students are not eligible for non-degree seeking status.
For academic certificates
Professionals who have completed master’s degrees or higher, who otherwise meet the standard of admissions as non-degree seeking students, are eligible to obtain academic certificates by completing 12 hours of higher level courses, plus any prerequisites the course may have. Upon completion of at least 12 hours of graduate coursework with a 3.0 GPA or better, the student is awarded an academic certificate.
