In addition to a completed application, prospective students must also supply the following supporting materials.

Supporting Materials

  • Résumé: A current professional résumé is required.
  • Transcripts: Submit official transcripts from every college and university you have attended. Request a transcript from Temple University.

Admissions Deadlines

The Fox School of Business has a rolling admissions process, meaning that applications are reviewed—and decisions made—as submissions are received. The admissions team encourages you to apply as early as possible within the admissions cycle. Applications may be considered after the deadline on a case-by-case basis.

GMAT Waiver

Students in the Online MBA and Part-time MBA programs may be eligible for a GMAT waiver if they meet the following qualifications.

  • You possess managerial-level experience that demonstrates growth.
  • You hold an undergraduate degree from an AACSB-accredited university.
  • You have a minimum of seven years of professional experience. If you have 7-10 years of experience, you must show a minimum 3.0 GPA from your undergraduate institution. If you have more than 10 years of experience, you are exempt from the GPA requirement.
