Ask Julie: Can I Still Apply and What Do I Need To Do?

Julie Dellinger - 2015 headshotI just saw that you are on rolling admissions and I want to apply for Fall 2018! What do I need for a complete application?

Yes, we are accepting applications on a rolling basis until each of our cohorts is full, so if you’ve been holding off on applying… do it now!

First, you’re going to want to start your online application: Find it here!

Here are the application requirements:

  • Essay
  • Resume
  • Official Undergraduate Transcripts (and Graduate Transcripts if you have them)
  • Online Recommendation form
  • GMAT or GRE scores*
  • TOEFL or IELTS (International Students Only)
  • Application Fee: $75

*We do offer a GMAT/GRE waiver for applicants who have demonstrated excellent quantitative, analytical and verbal skills through academic records and/or a successful career trajectory.

Formal Process for GMAT/GRE Waiver Consideration:

  • Start your online application account for the Part-time MBA program.
  • Complete the waiver section along with all other sections.
  • Submit a complete application with all requirements except for the official exam scores.

Please note: in order for the admissions committee to review your waiver request, all sections of the application must be complete. Most often I see that people are missing the recommendation or a TOEFL score (for international students)… so be sure to double-check you have completed the ENTIRE application as well as the waiver request section.
