  1. Students must formally apply with the Graduate Advising Office and be accepted into the graduate portion of the program. 
  2. The GMAT/GRE is not required for Silberman College of Business students having a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.00 or higher upon completion of the first semester of their junior year. Applicants not satisfying this minimum CGPA requirement are required to submit a GMAT/GRE score taken within the last five years.

Acceptance into the program takes place during the sixth semester of the undergraduate program (or three semesters prior to the student’s anticipated undergraduate graduation date).
