Graduate Application Process

Albers School of Business and Economics applicants are accepted into the program on the basis of their entire history (GPA, optional GMAT score, work experience, and TOEFL scores, if required), considering each factor individually, and in combination, as part of the admissions process. Personal statements and letters of reference are not required, but may be included, especially if there is information an applicant feels is important for the committee to take into consideration in their decision.

When your application is entered into our computer system, a letter is sent indicating what is needed to complete your application file. Completed applications generally take three to four weeks to be evaluated and reviewed by the department. An admissions decision is issued via mail soon after that. Check your application status on the Graduate Admissions website.

Applicants admitted to Seattle University will receive information via email regarding course registration, advising, and orientation. After the department receives the copy of the admittance letter, all transcripts are reviewed and students are notified if they are eligible to waive any coursework based on previous classes completed with a 3.0 (B) or better. All admitted students must attend an Advising Orientation session before they can register. Call (206) 296-5700 to sign up for a new graduate student orientation or contact an advisor with any questions.

Dual Degree Programs

Graduate students can earn a juris doctorate (JD) combined with an MBA, MSF, or MPAC. You must be accepted into both schools and can enroll in the dual program before entering either school or during your first year of graduate study in either school. Please contact the School of Law Admission Office about their requirements. Visit the dual program site for more information.
