Along with your completed application accompanied by $50 non-refundable application fee, you’ll need to provide a few supporting materials. Because there’s lead time required for some items, here’s a step-by-step process that seems to work best for candidates:
Complete your online or paper application. While you wait for your transcripts to be processed, you can begin your online application, which lets you build, edit and save sections of your application along the way. Or you can apply with our downloadable MBA application.
If you would like an application mailed to you, please email or call our Graduate Coordinator at 1-888-ALVERNIA extension 6.
Order your official transcript(s). Official transcript(s) indicating that the applicant has earned an appropriate baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. Transcripts from all institutions are required. A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for all previous undergraduate and graduate work is required for full acceptance.
Three letters of recommendation. Letters are accepted from former professors, employers, or supervisors familiar with the applicant’s professional experiences, or from religious or community leaders.
Personal Statement. One-page personal statement that summarizes the value of the program of graduate study for his/her personal and professional growth and development.
Scores from a graduate entrance exam. Standardized Tests, specifically the GRE or GMAT, are not required upon submission of your application. The MBA Admissions Committee may require test scores for a more thorough evaluation, especially in consideration of an applicant with an undergraduate GPA below 3.0.
Interview with the MBA program coordinator. After all the required application materials have been received, each applicant will be contacted to arrange for a personal interview.
Additional Evidence of potential for success. Items such as academic or professional awards, special certifications, samples of scholarly or creative work, and completion of specialized examinations. (not required, but encouraged)
