    • Students with an undergraduate cumulative GPA below 2.8 may be accepted on academic probation.

All tests of English proficiency must have been taken in the last 2 years to be considered for acceptance.

Transfer Credits

Students may transfer up to 6 semester hours of graduate business course work, provided that the courses were earned from a regionally accredited institution, a grade of B or higher was earned, and they are applicable to MVNU's program. Transfer credit is evaluated on a course-by-course basis and must be approved by the program coordinator for the student's intended graduate business degree.
