The following should be noted regarding the Application Process and Decisions:
Our intention is to accept students who demonstrate the greatest likelihood of success.
Decisions are based primarily on the student’s performance in collegiate level work and the required essay which must be appropriate and written at a collegiate level to be considered for admission.
Other factors that may be considered in the decision include (but are not limited to) number of prerequisite courses completed at the time of application, courses taken, pattern and trend of grades, institutions attended, co-curricular activities, contribution to the diversity of the student body, as well as career or work related experience.
The process is competitive and not all students who apply will be admitted.
While applicants must have at least a 2.25 combined cumulative grade point average to be considered, the combined cumulative grade point average of applicants who have been accepted in recent semesters has been 3.0.
Students not accepted by the School will not be allowed to register for 300-level business courses.
Within 45 days of the application deadline, you will be notified of the decision by letter via US Mail. Remember to check your mail at the address you provide on your application. We may e-mail you if we have questions, so please regularly check the e-mail account which you provide on your application.
