Graduate Admissions

Graduate programs require applicants to hold an undergraduate degree (or its equivalent) from an accredited post-secondary educational institution, with a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale). Certain applicants, particularly international students, may be asked to have their transcripts evaluated, at the student’s expense, by a reputable transcript evaluation company a list of which can be provided by the UU Admissions Office.

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) and PhD in Intercultural Global Leadership (PhDIGL) programs have their own admissions requirements. Please consult the Catalog for details about admission to these programs.
