Admissions: Decisions & Deadlines

Georgia Southern makes MBA admission decisions on a rolling basis.  That is, an admission decision is made when a candidate’s application packet is complete.  As a result, the advantages to applying early include:

  • first choice of classes to be taken.  There are a limited number of seats per semester for new students. When those seats are filled, a wait list is started.
  • if there are any problems with your application, you and we have time to address them.
  • an earlier decision gives you time to get your life and finances in order before starting classes.
  • only admitted students are considered for scholarships and graduate assistantships (campus only).
  • start earlier on completing any prerequisites or conditions of admission.

Deadlines:  all materials* must be in and available.
