Graduate & Online Business Transfer Checklist

Students must provide syllabi for the courses in which they would like to receive transfer credit. The syllabi, transcript, and Transfer Credit Form (can be obtained from the Registrar's Office) must be submitted to the MBA Director for review and consideration. The MBA Director completes the form and submits the approval and request for transfer credit to be awarded.


Do you offer scholarships to international students?

Answer: because tuition at the graduate level is offered at a tremendous discount, we are unable to offer scholarships to any student, domestic or international. However, after arriving on campus, several international students have been able to obtain graduate assistant positions which offer half off tuition plus minimum wage ($7.25 per hour) for up to 20 hours of work per week. These positions, which are limited and therefore quite competitive, can only be offered to accepted students.

Can I get a job to finance some costs?
