Dual Degree Program Admission and Enrollment
Students seeking admission to a dual degree program must meet admission requirements for both programs.
International Students
Because of the sequencing of courses in some graduate programs, international students enrolling for the first time in either the spring or summer semester may find it difficult to maintain their full-time student status taking only courses required by the program. International students who want to begin a graduate Business program in the spring or summer should consult with the Office of Graduate Admissions first and/or the program director about potential scheduling challenges.
Please contact the Office of Graduate Admissions for further information on all admissions-related matters.
