Are you an international student?

Please see the additional requirements we have for you below.

  • If you are an international applicant, you must submit a Certification of Finances Form and official bank statements before you can be issued an I-20 for a student visa. The Certificate of Finances Form and bank statements may be submitted once you are admitted to an MBA program.
  • If you were educated outside of the U.S., you must have a course-by-course degree evaluation conducted through World Education Services (WES) to ensure that your degree is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor's degree. You can request this after you have received an offer of admission by providing unofficial transcripts and applying by the priority deadline of April 1 for fall admission or October 15 for spring admission. Contact WES PO Box 5087, Bowling Green Station, New York, NY 10274, USA.
