Admissions

Key steps for admission to your online MBA in Finance program

The UNC MBA in Finance online program has specific requirements that you must meet to apply. Please review the requirements below.

The requirements include:

  • Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university
  • No work experience required with 3.0 GPA
  • No GMAT required with 2.5 GPA if all admission guidelines are met

MBA Online Admission Requirements

To satisfy the requirements for admission:

Earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Applicants who have earned a higher degree from an accredited institution without receiving a bachelor's degree (i.e. Pharm D) may be eligible to apply without the conferral of a bachelor's degree.

If you are still completing your bachelor's degree at the time you apply, admission will be based on your current cumulative GPA, and you will need to resubmit your official transcript (showing your conferred degree and final GPA) during your first semester. If your final GPA fell below 3.00, you will be given additional requirements as defined by the academic program that must be met within one calendar year to remain enrolled at UNC.

  • At least a 3.0 GPA in the most recent degree received with no work experience. A 2.75 to 2.99 GPA in the most recent degree received with at least three years of professional work experience. A 2.5 to 2.74 GPA in the most recent degree received with at least six years of professional work experience.
  • No GMAT is required; however, applicants who fall outside admission and work experience guidelines will be reviewed by the MBA program director to determine if a passing GMAT score may be required to qualify for admission to the MBA program. These applicants will be notified by the MBA program with the result of that review

Transcripts

Request one official transcript from any accredited college or university where a bachelor's degree or higher was earned (if you have earned multiple degrees, bachelor's level or higher, an official transcript is required from each college or university where a degree was conferred).

If you received a degree from UNC, you do not need to request a transcript from UNC.

The Graduate School & International Admission Office reserves the right to request that applicants provide official transcripts from other colleges or universities as needed.

Exceptions:

  • If an applicant intends to use Veteran's Education Benefits, an official transcript from all colleges or universities attended will be required in order to maintain compliance with Veteran's Affairs policies.

Official transcripts from U.S. institutions should be sent via mail directly from the educational institution in an unopened, sealed envelope or through an electronically secure digital program from the issuing institution. Mailed transcripts should be sent to:

Office of Admissions
Campus Commons
1051 22nd St
Campus Box 10
Greeley, CO 80639

Electronic transcripts from U.S. institutions should be sent directly from the educational institution to: [email protected].

The Graduate School and International Admission does not accept email, scanned or PDF transcripts directly from applicants. All official transcripts, submitted as part of the application process, are retained by UNC and not returned to applicants or admitted students.

UNC retains submitted transcripts, from institutions other than UNC, for admitted students for up to five years after graduation or date of last attendance at UNC. Transcripts provided by applicants who were not admitted, denied admissions or did not complete their application are destroyed after one year. The Graduate School will make every attempt to use previously-submitted transcripts if they are within these timeframes. However, if the Graduate School cannot locate previously submitted transcripts, the transcripts fall outside the timeframes listed above, or they are considered illegible, applicants must provide new transcripts.

Applicants with academic credentials from outside the U.S. will need to follow the requirements for submission of foreign transcripts. Click on the Transcripts tab for information about international transcripts.
