Admissions

Your online MBA in Supply Chain Management admission checklist

Let's get started! The admission process is the first step toward earning your online degree. Familiarize yourself with these requirements for the MBA in Supply Chain Management online program, along with information on required documentation.

Admission Requirements:

  • Baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution
  • Satisfactory GMAT score or accepted GMAT waiver
  • Resume

Prospective students seeking admission must submit the following in order for eligibility to be determined:

  • Complete an online application.
  • Pay the $50 application fee. The non-refundable fee must be paid before the application will be processed.
  • Baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution
  • Resume
  • Satisfactory GMAT score (or accepted GMAT waiver)
    • Quantitative measures are integrated into an index that multiplies the applicant's last 60 upper-division undergraduate hour GPA times 200 and adds the total GMAT score (60-hour GPA X 200) + GMAT => 1000. An index score of greater that 1000 is typical of a successful candidate.
    • If the student's last 60 upper-division undergraduate hour GPA is above 3.25, the GMAT may be waived
    • If below a 3.25 GPA, applicants with three or more years of executive managerial experience, after completing a bachelor’s degree, earned in the U.S. or with a U.S. government entity and who have a minimum 3.0 GPA on the last 60 upper-division undergraduate hour GPA may request to have the GMAT requirement waived by the Graduate Coordinator.
    • In rare instances, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be accepted in lieu of the GMAT

After reviewing all credentials (official transcripts, GMAT score, other relevant information), the Graduate Programs Coordinator and Soules College of Business Graduate Admissions Committee will determine if the student is accepted into the program. A degree plan will be prepared by the Graduate Programs Advisor with the student. Students will be notified of official acceptance into the program. Full admission must occur prior to enrollment beyond the first semester.

Students may request that the original institution send the transcripts electronically to [email protected]. Transcripts sent electronically will only be reviewed if they are received directly from the original school.

Provisional Admission

Provisional admission status is good for two start periods within the same semester. Official transcripts and any other missing documents must be submitted prior to enrollment in the first session of the second semester. A student who is not fully admitted by the beginning of the first session of the second semester will not be allowed to continue in the program until full admission requirements are met.

Learn more about financial aid opportunities and payment options.

Documents and official, sealed transcripts should be mailed to:

Note: Applicants with foreign transcripts must submit a detailed, course-by-course international transcript evaluation.

UT Tyler accepts international transcript evaluations conducted by the current members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services.
