Degree Requirement

Students applying to the Flexible MBA program are required to have a bachelor's degree in any field of study. The bachelor's degree must be earned from a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States or its international equivalent. The degree requirement is met by providing an official transcript to the Graduate College bearing the statement and date of degree conferral. Students who have an advanced degree should have their official transcripts sent to the Graduate College as well.

Students who have received their bachelor's and/or advanced degree(s) from an academic institution which is located outside the United States are required to provide an official transcript evaluation. The degree requirement is met if and only if the official transcript evaluation contains a statement equating their credentials to a U.S. bachelor's degree earned at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States.
