Part-Time & Online MBA Course Waiver Policy

All students must complete a 52 credit program, with/without any course waivers. There is no option to transfer of credits into the curriculum.

All admitted applicants will go through an automatic core course waiver review process at the point of admission.  If a core course is waived, students will take an equivalent number of elective credits to be complete for the MBA degree.  Course waivers are not an equivalent to a waiver of credits requirements. Candidates waive a required course or topic, candidates will not be waived the credit.

The following criteria must be met for a Part-Time or Online MBA core course to be waived:

  • Two undergraduate courses OR one graduate level course in a core course area. Exception made for Managerial Accounting to allow one undergraduate or one graduate level course or current CMA certification.  

    • Classes must have been taken at an AACSB accredited international institution or at a regionally accredited U.S. institution.

    • The most recent of the two courses must have been taken within the past five years.

    • A grade of B or better must be earned in a course used for course waiver consideration.


  • Satisfactorily passing a waiver exam prior to the end of their first semester in the program. Only confirmed students can take waiver exams.

Details on waiver exams can be found on the Canvas MBA Academic Resources site under New Students > Waiver Exams
