Admissions Checklist

What you need to know before applying to National University

Please take a few minutes to review these graduate admissions requirements before submitting your application:

  • Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree or higher from a regionally accredited college or university where an overall grade point average of 2.5 or better was achieved, or where a grade point average of 2.75 or higher was achieved in the last 90 quarter units.
  • Students with a grade point average of 2.0 to 2.49 may be admitted to the University if they have a satisfactory score on one of the following tests: GMAT, GRE, Miller Analogies Test, or an approved, standardized program-specific exam. These tests are NOT required for those with a GPA over 2.5.
  • Students with an undergraduate grade point average of 2.0 to 2.49 may be accepted to National University on a probationary status (instead of taking the above tests). Students are ineligible for official admission and will not be processed for degree evaluation or financial aid until students have completed a minimum of 4.5 or a maximum of 13.5 quarter units of graduate study with a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
  • Preliminary documentation of prior education must be presented at required interview with an admissions advisor. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable.
  • Complete an application for admission and enrollment agreement.
  • Remit a non-refundable application fee of $60.
  • Individual degree programs may have additional admission requirements.
