Spring 2021 Admissions Process

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in GMAT and GRE exam delays and cancellations for in-person exams. In response to this, the Anderson School of Management has approved an alternative admission process for the Spring 2021 application cycle.

The entrance exam requirement is waived for Spring 2021 applicants. Applicants with a cumulative gpa below 3.0 will be required to submit a personal statement and resume here in addition to the existing online application, transcripts and application fee. There is no formula, character limit, or recommendation for writing the personal statement. Look at your own experience and at the opportunity you're applying for with a critical eye.

Applications are due on October 1, 2020 with $100 application fees (for domestic applicants). International applicants, please visit the Global Education Office for more information.
