Check Application Status

MBA applicants are responsible for monitoring their application. Applicants can monitor their application status online. The MBA Program will email applicants once all application materials have been sent to the MBA Program and the application is complete. To protect the privacy of our applicants, we do not release the application status or decision via non-official* email or phone. In addition, we do not discuss an applicant’s status with anyone except the applicant. 


The MBA Program will only review completed applications. Once an application is complete, the MBA Program will send an email indicating that the application is being reviewed. After the application is reviewed, the MBA Office will send the applicant an email with an attached letter confirming the admission decision within approximately four to six weeks. Students typically receive one of the following admission decisions: Offer of admission, interview invitation, denial of admission, denial with an option to reapply, conditional admission, or waitlist offer.


If an applicant is admitted into the MBA Program, he or she will receive an acceptance letter and admission packet. The student will need to return his or her acceptance materials and enrollment fee to the MBA Program within 30 calendar days from the date of the acceptance letter, unless otherwise noted on the admission letter. If a student fails to send in his or her acceptance materials and enrollment fee to the program within the deadline, the applicant forfeits his or her spot in the MBA Program.

After the MBA Office has received the non-refundable enrollment fee and acceptance packet, the office will contact the student regarding a mandatory orientation session and math module and information on course registration. Admitted students are required to attend the new student orientation before beginning their first term. Failure to attend orientation and submission of required math modules, may lead to MBA admission revocation and/or the placement of an academic hold on the student’s account.


An applicant may receive a letter via email confirming that he or she has not been accepted into the MBA Program. An applicant may also receive a letter indicating a denial with an option to reapply. This letter is sent to students whose applications are competitive, with the exception of GPA, GMAT, or TOEFL. In this case, the Program will deny the student’s application, but will allow the student one calendar year to reapply once the student has increased his/her GPA, GMAT, GRE or TOEFL without paying an additional application fee or submitting the application materials again. The request is typically made to students with lower GMAT or GRE scores.


Applicants who are waitlisted will receive a letter via email confirming waitlist status. This means that the student’s application is competitive for admission for that term, but that the Program may not have capacity to accept that student. The letter will ask the applicant to contact the MBA Office to confirm whether he or she would like to remain on the waitlist until an opening is available to begin the Program for that semester. A student can request to be evaluated for admission for the next term.


Very few students are considered for conditional admission. These applicants will receive an email confirming they are admitted contingent upon specific conditions, such as maintaining a minimum GPA their first semester. If the student fails to meet the conditions of their acceptance, a hold will be placed on their account, and they will be removed from the Program.
