  4. Statement of purpose highlighting motivation, specific option/area of interest within the program, relevant experience or background particular to the proposed study.

* GRE/GMAT quantitative scores will be used to evaluate the preparation for MBA and other quantitative courses; appropriate remediation will be recommended if necessary.

Students are also strongly encouraged to submit the FAFSA form in order to be eligible for Graduate Deans Awards, which provide financial support to graduate students in financial need who have not received an assistantship or other scholarship. Information on the FAFSA is available on the UNCG Financial Aid website.
