Business Administration MBA: General Business

Admissions Deadlines

This program has multiple start dates each year.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must apply to the Graduate School at the University of Northern Colorado. Failure to submit all required materials will delay the evaluation and screening of your application.

Each applicant must:

  • Possess a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university or a comparable degree from a foreign institution.
  • Have a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale on the most recent 60 credit hours. You may be granted provisional admission with verification of acceptable work experience if your GPA is at least 2.50 during the last 60 undergraduate hours (see below).
    • Provisional admission for students with a cumulative GPA between 2.50 and 2.99 during the last 60 undergraduate hours, based on work experience with the following formula: GPA x 200 + years of work experience x 10 > = 600

Take the following steps to be considered for admission:

Step 1: Complete the Application

Complete the online application and pay the application fee (you will pay the fee after you complete all application questions and submit the application)

  • Domestic Students: $50 non-refundable application fee
  • International Students: $60 non-refundable application fee

Step 2: Transcripts

Request one official transcript from every accredited college or university attended or from which you earned credit, except UNC. Official transcripts from each college are required, even if courses taken at one institution are listed on another school’s transcript. This includes concurrent enrollment courses taken while in high school through an accredited college. You do not need to provide study abroad transcripts.

Official transcripts may be sent via mail in an unopened sealed envelope or through an electronically secure digital program directly from the issuing institution. Mailed transcripts should be sent to:

Graduate School and International Admissions 
University of Northern Colorado 
Campus Box 135 
501 20th Street 
Greeley, CO 80639

Electronic transcripts should be sent to grad.applicationmaterials@unco.edu. We do not accept email, scanned or PDF transcripts directly from the student.

UNC retains submitted transcripts, from institutions other than UNC, for admitted students for up to five years after graduation or date of last attendance at UNC. Transcripts provided by applicants who were not admitted, denied admissions or did not complete their application are destroyed after one (1) year. The Graduate School will make every attempt to use previously-submitted transcripts if they are within these timeframes. However, if the Graduate School cannot locate previously submitted transcripts, the transcripts fall outside the timeframes listed above, or they are considered illegible, applicants must provide new transcripts.

Applicants with academic credentials from outside the U.S. will need to follow the requirements for submission of foreign transcripts. Click on the Transcripts tab for information about international transcripts.

Step 3: Supplemental Items

You will need to log back into the online application system, scroll down and click on "Submit Supplemental Items" to do the following:

  1. Upload the item below:
    • Current resume listing three references
  2. Take the GMAT. Have the GMAT scores sent directly to UNC. UNC's institutional code is W8Z.
    • A GMAT score of 500 or above. The GMAT is waived for applicants who have:
      • A 3.0 GPA in the last 60 hours of undergraduate work and
      • Three-plus years of continuous managerial or professional work experience or a graduate degree from a regionally accredited institution.

Once you apply to the UNC Graduate School and your application packet is complete, your application will be reviewed by the Graduate School.
