College Credit and Testing

There is no testing requirement for applicants who meet one of the following criteria.

  • Hold a graduate degree from a regionally accredited university
  • Hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university, with a minimum 3.0 overall GPA or a minimum 3.0 GPA in last 60 semester hours of courses

GPA+GMAT Option

Applicants with a GPA below the 2.5 minimum can still qualify for the program with a QA (Quantitative Acceptance formula) score of 950 or better. To qualify for this option, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  1. Hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university, with minimum 2.25 overall GPA or minimum 2.5 GPA in last 60 semester hours of courses
  2. Obtain a minimum GMAT score of 450 (GRE is accepted using the GRE® Comparison Tool for Business Schools to convert the GRE score to GMAT equivalent)

The QA score is determined with the QA Formula: (GPA x 200)+GMAT Score >= 950
For example, a 2.25 overall GPA and a 500 GMAT would result in a total of 950, which is acceptable for full admission.
