Graduate Admissions Deadlines and Requirements

Academic Credentials Verification

All students who have completed an undergraduate degree outside of the United States are required to submit official transcripts and submit a third-party evaluation of their academic credentials. Academic credential evaluations are accepted from any NACES (www.naces.org) recommended service provider.

Admissions Interviews

Admissions interviews are an important component of our comprehensive and holistic evaluation process. All applicants who are offered admission to our graduate business programs will have a completed admissions interview on file.

Applicants will be considered by our admissions committee for an interview after submitting an application. Interviews are a required part of the application and applicants are strongly encouraged to sign up for an interview as soon as you receive the initial invitation. The admissions committee may also render a decision without an interview if it feels that it has sufficient information to do so.

Here are a few notes about the admissions interview:

  • Interviews are conducted by members of the admissions staff, faculty members, current students, or alumni.
  • Applicants should prepare for a 25- to 30-minute interview.
  • Interviews are offered on select days throughout the week on a space-available basis. Interviews should be scheduled at least ten (10) days prior to the date you would like to interview.

Language Proficiency

All applicants whose native language is not English must submit an original TOEFL or IELTS test score. Exceptions:

  • Applicants who have completed an undergraduate or graduate degree at an institution where the primary language of instruction is English and is located in a country in which the official language is English

The Gabelli School of Business reserves the right to evaluate an applicant’s language proficiency based on the admissions interview, the TOEFL or IELTS test score, and an additional language proficiency exam (given by Fordham University) prior to the enrollment term. Depending on the outcome of the language proficiency assessment, an intensive language and culture program may be required prior to the enrollment term.
