MBA degree-seeking students can be admitted as degree-seeking students, either before any graduate certificate has been completed or at any time during the graduate certificate earning process. However, acceptance into a graduate certificate does not mean acceptance into the MBA.
If a student has successfully completed a graduate certificate with an overall GPA of 3.2 or higher, the student can be directly admitted to the MBA program, subject to a grade review.
Up to 1/3 of the credits required for the MBA program may be transferred from another institution. All coursework must be approved for transfer credit. A grade of “B” or higher is required for a course to be considered for transfer credit. Reference the Graduate Transfer Credit policy for additional information.
