    You may earn up to six credit-hours
    (two classes) for your military education.1
  • Forego the cost of taking the GMAT.  If you have an overall undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher - or have earned a master's degree from a regionally accredited institution - we will waive the GMAT requirement for entry.2
