1.) GPA:

Option 1- Student must have a 2.75 cumulative GPA.

Option 2- If the student does not meet the GPA requirement of option 1, then the calculated GPA of all upper-level coursework (junior and senior level) must equal a 3.0 for regular admission.

2.) GMAT:

Option 1- Student must attain a minimum score of 430.

Option 2- If a student already has obtained a master's degree from an accredited institution, the MBA director may consider a waiver of the GMAT requirement, taking into consideration factors such as the recency and discipline of degree.
