International Applicants

Full-Time MBA

In addition to the application checklist, you should be aware of the following special instructions that apply to your application for admission. Because of the additional documentation required, be sure to start the admissions process as soon as possible and adhere to all application deadlines. Students seeking an F-1 Visa are not eligible to apply to the part-time program.

Transcripts

Applicants with international degrees are not required to have their educational credentials evaluated by a NACES evaluating agency.* Applicants should submit original or certified (notarized) copies of all post-secondary transcripts, marksheets, examination results, diplomas and degrees. These documents should be mailed to our address. If not issued in English, a translation must be provided from a professional translation agency.

If you already have an advanced degree from the U.S., you will need to submit an official copy of the advanced degree as well as the official transcripts of your bachelor’s degree.

*Please note that RBS reserves the right to request an applicant to have their transcript evaluated by a NACES accredited credentialing agency. Situations where this could happen are if the applicant has a **three year degree or for applicants requesting a GMAT waiver. The RBS Office of Graduate Admissions will reach out to the applicant with this request. For a list of NACES agencies, go to: naces.org/members.htm

**Selected three-year Indian bachelor’s degrees may be considered equivalent to a U.S. bachelor degree without an evaluation as long as they have been earned in Division I/First Class and the awarding institution is currently accredited by India’s National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with a letter grade of “A” or better.  Using the above standards will allow you to know if you are eligible to apply to the graduate programs at Rutgers Business School.

English Language Tests

If your native language is not English, you must submit test results from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic). This is not required of students who have obtained an undergraduate or graduate degree in the U.S. or other English-speaking country (Canada, England, etc.).
