The application process for the MBA program is relatively straightforward, although applicants should allow sufficient time to request and submit the required documentation.  The online application and all supporting documents are submitted to the College of Graduate Studies (COGS).  Once a Graduate Admissions specialist has determined the application packet is complete, the MBA director will review the application to make the admission recommendation.  You can monitor your application status online. The MBA program makes admission decisions on a rolling basis so applicants are encouraged to apply early.

Online application – You can start the online application immediately here.  After registering, the application can be completed over multiple sessions.

Transcripts – COGS requires one official* copy of your transcripts from every college or university you have attended.  The transcripts must come directly from the school or its authorized agent.  Depending on the school, this may take several weeks. Georgia Southern transcripts do not need to be requested.

*Unofficial test scores and transcripts (one per institution attended) are permitted for the application process. Official documents must be submitted prior to matriculation if offered admission.

GMAT – The GMAT is a significant determinant of the admission decision, and studying for the exam will help prepare you for graduate-level coursework.  Although the test is administered throughout the year, centers tend to fill up around deadline dates.  Give yourself plenty of time to prepare for the test and set a date.  If you do have to retake the test, you will need to wait at least 30 days from your last test date.  Take note of identification requirements needed on your test day.


Application status – Applicants can track the status of their application and materials received/required online.
