For prospective students navigating their graduate application during the COVID-19 pandemic, Seattle University has modified several admissions requirements:

  • The GMAT or GRE testing requirement is now considered optional for anyone applying to a non-law graduate program that begins in the 2021-22 academic year (summer of 2021 through fall of 2022)
  • Unofficial transcripts will be accepted for those through the fall 2022 term (Official transcripts are required before 2nd quarter registration)
  • The application fee has been waived through the fall 2022 term

Admissions requirements vary slightly for the Online MBA and Online MSBA. Before starting your application, be sure to review the requirements for your preferred program and confirm that you have collected all of the required materials. In order to have your application sent for review, you must speak to an Admissions Advisor to ensure you meet the admission requirements.
