Standardized Admission Tests
- MBA programs require the GMAT or GRE exam.

- Law school programs require the LSAT. (If accepted to the School of Law, the GMAT is not required for application to the joint law/business programs.)
Application Review Process
Regular admission is offered to students whose application files are complete.
This allows students to begin their graduate program while granting them an extension to submit a required document. Alternatively, some students may be granted a one- or two-semester period either to complete additional prerequisite courses specified by their program or to achieve the program's regular curriculum.
Candidates offered conditional admission are given a deadline for the completion of their files. Failure to meet this deadline may result in suspension from student status.
Applicants who cannot enroll in the term for which admission was offered can request to have their admission deferred for up to one year. Such requests must be in writing and will be considered on an individual basis. Applicants who have had their admission deferred cannot register for courses at the school during the period of deferment.
Deferred admission is not offered for the physician assistant or pathologists' assistant programs.
