Professionals consider graduate studies for a variety of reasons - some to advance their careers and others to continue their education in order to add new depth to their lives' work. Whatever your reasons, we understand the commitment you're considering. Students from all academic disciplines are invited to apply to Oklahoma Christian University's graduate business programs, provided they hold a bachelors' degree from a regionally-accredited college or university.
To apply to the Graduate School of Business, the following materials must be submitted:
- A completed online application (including an application fee)
- Official transcripts from the college or university that granted your bachelor's degree and any other institutions attended before or after that time. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 is required for admission; however, students with a GPA between 2.5 and 3.0 may be admitted on probation, which will be removed upon completion of 12 graduate credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and/or any other deficiencies.
- Three recommendations from professors, employers, or someone who supports you in your decision to earn your master's degree. (Request Recommendations here.)
- GMAT (450 minimum) or GRE test scores (285 minimum with at least a 3.0 on the written section) that were issued within the last five yearrs. This requirement can be waived if your cumulative undergraduate GPA was 3.25 or greater and you have no work experience, if your cumulative undergraduate GPA was 3.0 and you have five years of work experience, or if you have successfully completed nine graduate hours at an accredited university.
