Requirements and Criteria for Admission

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher education or an equivalent degree from a recognized international institution of higher education
  • A cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.75, in the bachelor’s degree program, or comparable GPA for an international applicant
  • Application Fee ($25.00)
  • Official Transcripts for all Undergraduate degrees completed
  • Two Letters of Recommendation
  • Current Resume
  • Official TOFEL Scores (for international students only)
  • A personal statement about their goals and career aspirations
  • A copy of two legal documents verifying identity, one with a picture of the student and their signature affixed (i.e. state issued driver license, other state or government issued identification). For international students, a passport will suffice.

The institution reserves the right to grant admission to post-baccalaureate applicants who have earned at least a 2.0 – 2.749 cumulative grade point average and/or do not hold a degree in Business from a regionally/nationally accredited institution, or do not meet GMAT/GRE requirements on a provisional basis. Students are considered probationary, and thus, must meet minimum GPA requirements of 3.0 the first semester to remain in the program and subsequently be removed from provisional/probationary status. Provisional students who do not meet the minimum will be dismissed from the program.

*Official GMAT/GRE Scores

For students without an undergraduate degree in Business, a GMAT/GRE score must be submitted – scores cannot be more than five years old. The exception for such students is the completion of 9 credit hours of undergraduate study in Introduction to Business, Financial Accounting, and Principles of Macroeconomics or a course of study as prescribed by the Dean. Students in this category are provisionally admitted.

Transfer students must meet the aforementioned criteria for admission, include official transcripts from any undergraduate and graduate institutions. Transfer credits may be accepted upon review and approval by the Dean of Graduate Studies and/or Chairperson of the Department of Business Administration.

Therefore, similar to the current transfer student admission policies for undergraduate studies, graduate transfer students are considered for regular admission differentiated that they have a minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA on all course work attempted. No minimum credit hours or units are required, and transfer consideration is given for all academic terms. In addition, the transfer student must meet the following criteria:

  • Must have good academic standing and/or eligibility to return to previous institution for full-time study
  • Submit official college/university transcripts of all previous collegiate institutions attended (undergraduate and graduate coursework).
  • Submit GMAT/GRE score report and all other required aforementioned admissions standards for first-time graduate student applicants.

Current language regarding undergraduate students recognizes a Readmit Student as an applicant who has previously attended Edward Waters College but withdrew or transferred to another institution and now desires to re-enroll in classes at EWC. The same applies for graduate students in that a readmit student is an applicant who has previously attended Edward Waters College Application Requirements include:

  • Completed admissions application
  • $25 application fee
  • Official College transcripts (if the student has attended another institution since leaving EWC)

To be considered for regular admission to EWC international students who apply to graduate studies must be graduates of a post-secondary school and submit a General Certification of Education, Completion, or its equivalent for those applying from the British Commonwealth.

All international applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a score of 153 or above (53 or above for the Internet-based score). TOEFL scores will be waived for applicants who graduate from high schools within the United States, whose native language or language of instruction is English, or students transferring to EWC after at least one year at another English language college or university.
