Each application must be accompanied by a $60 (U.S.) MBA application fee ($80 for international / non-U.S. resident applicants). This may be paid online with a credit card using the online application form. Personal checks or money orders are also accepted, and should be made payable to Weber State University and sent to the MBA Program Office at the address below. Please make sure your name is clearly written on your check. Applications will not be reviewed until payment is received.
ONLINE applicants need only fill out the online application form. Paper-based applications to the MBA program necessitates a separate application to Weber State University. International applicants must submit all application materials to the MBA program and to Weber State University at least 60 days prior to their proposed date of entry to the program in order to allow for international admission requirements.
Applicants should upload a current resume in the online application form. The resume should include telephone numbers and an e-mail address as well as a summary of educational background and work experience.
Applicants are responsible for submitting a complete application. If your application is incomplete at the time of submission, it will be held until missing items are submitted. Applicants may logon to their application portal to check which elements of their applications have been received.
Each application is reviewed in depth by the MBA Admissions Committee. Decisions are made only after thoughtful weighing of all the evidence provided to us by each candidate and with careful consideration given to the overall balance of participants we seek for the MBA Program.
Official transcripts of your academic record should be sent directly from the institutions in question to the MBA Program Office. Transcripts may be sent from the applicant if they are left unopened in the original, SEALED envelopes in which you receive them.
All applicants are required to submit scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). Every applicant must also request that the Educational Testing Service (ETS) send an official score report directly to the John B. Goddard School of Business and Economics for verification purposes.
Your application will not be considered complete without GMAT scores and percentiles reported. If the MBA Program Office has not received an official score report at the time you submit your application, you should report the total, quantitative, and verbal scores from the computerized test. You should also enclose a copy of the unofficial score report that you received from the GMAT testing center.

In addition to the online MBA application, international applicants will need to complete additional materials in order to comply with university and United States INS regulations. For a checklist of additional items required, please contact the International Student and Scholar Center at 801-626-6853, or go to http://weber.edu/SIS/Internationaladmissions.html .
International applicants are required to furnish proof that they have earned the equivalent to a US bachelor's degree for college/university course work completed outside of the United States. To do this you will need to send an original copy of your undergraduate transcript to a Foreign Credentials Evaluation company and request both a degree and course-by-course transcript evaluation. An official copy of the evaluation report must be sent to the MBA Program office, so that this information can be added to your MBA application. Please go to http://weber.edu/SIS/Foreign_Credentials.html for a list of credential evaluation companies accepted by WSU.
International applicants must be able to comprehend and speak English fluently, as well as read and write English competently. Candidates from non-English-speaking countries are required to establish proof of English language competency unless they received their bachelor's degree from a university in which the language of instruction was English. This may consist of one of the following:
An applicant is required to furnish two recommendations, at least one of which should be from someone who has known you in a professional context, preferably a supervisor. Online applicants must enter e-mail addresses of those providing references, and they will be contacted by e-mail to upload their recommendations online. For references without e-mail addresses, please provide those sending references with the Letter of Recommendation form.
If you are mailing any application materials directly, use a 9" x 12" (or page-sized) envelope to mail your application. Do not insert application materials into a binder or notebook of any kind. Print your name and return address on the upper left-hand corner of the envelope. Mail to:
