International Admissions Requirements
To be admitted in good standing to any Cumberland University graduate program, students need proof of having completed a bachelor’s or higher degree from any regionally accredited institution with a minimum GPA of 2.5. Students with less than a 2.5 GPA may complete two courses under provisional acceptance. If the student earns a grade of B or higher in both of those courses, they will earn final acceptance. We have eliminated entrance exams from our admissions process, which means that the GMAT exam is not required for admission into the program. There is a $50 application fee and immunizations will be required.
