Graduate Admissions

Admittance to a master’s level program requires the following:

Minimum Cumulative GPA ≥ 2.0

Admittance to a master's-level program requires a student to possess a baccalaureate, master's or first-level professional degree with a cumulative GPA≥ 2.0 from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or foreign equivalent. Official transcripts showing proof of a baccalaureate, master's or first-level professional degree must be received by the Registrar’s office no later than the 49th day of the first term of enrollment.

Appropriate documentation must be received and verified by the Registrar’s office by the 49th day of the first term. If such proof is not received, student will be removed from their current terms as well as future terms and no charges will be incurred.

GPA Waiver

If the 2.0 GPA minimum is not met, the prospective graduate student may file a request for GPA waiver for admission to a graduate program. The dean or chair of the respective college or program within the University will consider admission on a case-by-case basis.

Standardized Tests Not Required

No standardized tests (e.g., GRE or GMAT) are required for admission to MBA, MS or MHA degree programs.

Prospective students who provide false or altered admissions documentation to include transcripts for potential transfer credit will be denied admission to University of Arkansas Grantham with no chance for future enrollment. Any pending financial aid will be reviewed and disposition determined.
