Leveling Coursework & Provisional Admissions

Leveling Coursework

Any deficiency in required prerequisite courses must be satisfied by taking appropriate courses or by completing online modules designed to enhance the understanding of finance and accounting practices.

Provisional Admissions

Admission may be granted to applicants who do not meet all of the program prerequisites. After reviewing all credentials (official transcripts and other relevant information), the Dean of the School of Business will determine if a student who does not meet the admission requirements should be accepted into the program on a provisional basis.

Provisional admission may also be granted to applicants who lack the required English proficiency, but who are otherwise qualified for admission to the program. Students granted provisional admission under these circumstances must enroll in the Intensive English Program (IEP) until they achieve the required level of English fluency as measured by the TOEFL, IELTS, or other measurement prescribed by the IEP Director.

All International students enrolled in the IEP must maintain full-time status by enrolling in a combination of ESOL, undergraduate, and graduate courses as recommended by the IEP Director and approved by the graduate program director.

Students granted provisional admission:

  • Must maintain at least a 2.75 grade point average during their first 6 hours of graduate work to be eligible to receive full admission and continue their graduate study.
  • After 6 hours, if a student fails to achieve at least a 2.750 grade point average, he/she will be ineligible to continue in the program and will be notified in writing.

Transfer Credit Policy

  • A student may transfer up to 6 hours into the University
  • Evaluation and awarding of transfer credit for graduate course work will be based on official transcripts from prior institutions after students have made application for admission to the University.
  • The University accepts academic work from institutions listed in the American Council on Education publication, Accredited Institutions of Postsecondary Education, on the basis of a course-by-course evaluation.
