How to Apply

Note: You may encounter some issues when applying. Please carefully review our application instructions to learn how to bypass any problems.

The online application takes less than an hour to complete and can be saved anytime.

Before applying, we highly recommended you make an appointment (in-person, by phone or online) with one of our program advisors. Our advisors can review your transcripts to ensure you meet all business course requirements. They can also answer any questions you have about the program or application process.

After submitting your application, you will need to submit official copies of their transcripts from all institutions attended to Admissions and Records. After the Admissions and Records office receives these documents, the official review of your application begins. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and the processing time may take several weeks. The earlier the official transcripts are received, the earlier an admission decision can be made.

If you have any immediate questions about filling out or submitting your application, email us directly at and a staff member will get back to you as soon as possible.
