Along with the grade point average and GMAT or GRE scores, admission criteria include the following:
An undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, as calculated by Graduate Admissions, is typical of a successful candidate. This will be integrated into a formula or index that multiplies the GPA by 200 and adds the resulting value to the GMAT Score. An index score greater than 1070 or higher is typical of a successful candidate.
GMAT sub-scores (verbal and quantitative) are also considered in the admission decision. GMAT sub scores greater than the 30th percentiles are typical of a successful candidate.
A GRE quantitative percentile greater than the 30th percentile and a Verbal percentile greater than the 30th percentile is typical of a successful applicant.
International applicants must submit a score of at least 550 on the paper-based TOEFL, a score of at least 213 on the computer-based TOEFL, a minimum score of 40 on the TSE, a minimum score of 6.5 on the IELTS, or a minimum TOEFL iBT total score of 79 with sectional scores that meet or exceed 22 for the writing section, 21 for the speaking section, 20 for the reading section, and 16 for the listening section to meet this requirement.
Grades in specified undergraduate business and non-business courses (math, accounting, economics, statistics, for example)
Educational objectives and quality of written expression of the 200-word application essay.
Letters (2 are required) of recommendation from two persons familiar with the applicant’s academic background and/or work experience who can assess the applicant’s potential success in graduate school.
General and specific program accreditation status of the degree-granting institution.
Professional work experience.
Professional certification or licensure.
For unconditional admission, the applicant’s composite total from the index must be 1070 or higher and items 1 through 5 above should strongly indicate the potential for successful academic performance as a graduate real estate student.
Students who are unconditionally admitted, have a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 as calculated by Graduate Admissions (or 3.0 at the graduate level), and enroll for a minimum of six semester credit hours will be eligible for available fellowship and/or scholarship support. A standardized test score (GMAT) will not be used as the primary criterion for determining fellowship and/or scholarship eligibility.
For an applicant with an index score below 1070, probationary admission may be available if items 1-10 indicate a potential for successful academic performance as a graduate real estate student. Probationary admission requires the student to maintain a 3.00-grade point average for the first two semesters of enrollment. Additionally, the student may be required to take deficiency courses.
