Statement of purpose.
Your written statement is your chance to convince the admissions committee that you will do excellent doctoral work and that you have the promise to have a successful career as an academic researcher.
We require either a valid GMAT or valid GRE score. At-home testing is allowed. Your unofficial score report from the testing institution is sufficient for application. If you are admitted to the program, you will be required to submit your official test score for verification.
We do not have a minimum score requirement. We do not offer test waivers. Registration information for the GMAT (code X5X-QS-21) and GRE (code 3510) may be obtained at www.mba.com and www.ets.org respectively.
We require either a valid TOEFL (minimum score 577 PBT/90 IBT ) or valid IELTS (minimum score 7) for all non-native English speakers. Your unofficial score report from the testing institution is sufficient for application. If you are admitted to the program, you will be required to submit your official test score for verification. Registration information for TOEFL (code 3510) and IELTS may be obtained at www.toefl.org and www.ielts.org respectively.
The TOEFL/IELTS test requirement is waived only if you meet one of the following criteria:
- You are a native English speaker.
- You attended all years of an undergraduate program conducted solely in English, and are a graduate of that program.
Please do not contact the PhD Program regarding waivers, as none will be discussed. If, upon review, the faculty are interested in your application with a missing required TOEFL or IELTS score, we may contact you at that time to request a score.
We require unofficial copies of transcripts for each college or university you have attended, even if no degree was awarded. If these transcripts are in a language other than English, we also require a copy of a certified translation. In addition, you will be asked to list the five most relevant courses you have taken.
Letters of Recommendation
We require three letters of recommendation. Academic letters are preferred, especially those providing evidence of research potential. We allow for an optional fourth recommendation, but no more than four recommendations are allowed.
Your resume should be no more than two pages. You may chose to include teaching, professional experience, research experience, publications, and other accomplishments in outside activities.
Applicants are encouraged to submit a writing sample. For applicants to the Finance group, a writing sample is required. There are no specific guidelines for your writing sample. Possible options include (but are not limited to) essays, masters’ theses, capstone projects, or research papers.
A video essay is required for the Accounting research group and optional for the Marketing and System Dynamics research groups. The essay is a short and informal video answering why you selected this research group and a time where you creatively solved a problem. The video can be recorded with your phone or computer, and should range from 2 to 5 minutes in length. There is no attention — zero emphasis! — on the production value of your video.

Applying for the GMAT Waiver
The application process for a GMAT waiver is the same for USC students and non-USC students.
Please include unofficial PDF versions of your transcripts. Transcripts from all colleges attended are required (not just your current college). Transcripts should break out your coursework by semester.
Transcripts from non-U.S. schools need to be converted to the U.S. 4.0 scale using a member of the NACES . Study abroad classes taken at a non-U.S. school included on your U.S. school transcript do not need to be converted.
Please include a PDF version of your current resume.

Scenario 1: You have elected pass/fail grading in upper-level accounting courses. Please include factors considered when making the decision to elect pass/fail grading. Your discussion can include academic and non-academic challenges faced during the semester. Please also include a copy of your school’s pass/fail policy during the spring 2020 semester, if applicable and available.
Scenario 2: You chose not to elect pass/fail grading in upper-level accounting courses during the spring and summer of 2020 (the COVID-19 pandemic), and as a result, you do not meet the current GMAT waiver qualifications.

Tips to Succeed
Campus COVID Information
You may be eligible for a GMAT/GRE waiver for our Full-Time MBA. We recognize the unprecedented times we are now facing and the testing challenges many have encountered. We have modified our language to allow applicants to request and be considered for a waiver IF meeting at least one of the following criteria:
- Undergraduate degree from a U.S. institution with a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher (or the equivalent if another grading scale is used) in a quantitative area including: business administration, economics, engineering, biological sciences, information and computer science, health sciences or physical sciences.
- Graduate (master’s or doctoral) degree or professional credential such as Certified Public Accountant or Certified Financial Analyst.
- Five or more years of professional work experience after completing undergraduate degree.
- Four or more years of military experience.
Request for a GMAT Waiver should be submitted in your MBA application and indicate one of the above reasons supporting your request.
Applicants who believe their GMAT/GRE score might add value to their overall application are encouraged to include their scores with the application. Submitting a test score gives the admission committee an additional data point for application evaluation. Please note that not having a standardized test score will NOT affect your application adversely. However, this will mean that your coursework taken would then form the sole basis for assessing your academic readiness for the program.
Similar to all components of the application, your goal should be to submit the strongest application to represent your candidacy.
The University of California requires an undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 or higher for admission to graduate study.
To learn more, contact your admissions representative .
The UT Master of Accountancy graduate committee may waive the GMAT or GRE testing requirement for undergraduate students who have proven their academic capability with high performance in both general and accounting coursework. To be considered for unconditional admission, without taking the GMAT or GRE, the student’s cumulative GPA must be 3.5 or better and the undergraduate work must have been completed at an approved accredited institution. Other potential waiver options are listed below and must be approved by the graduate committee.
- A student may be eligible for the GMAT/GRE waiver with a combination of a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and an accounting foundation core GPA of 3.5, or with significant work experience to validate the waiver request. Qualified applicants may be granted sufficient credit with suitable exposure to accounting acumen and proper documentation from the employer. A detailed request must be made to the graduate program coordinator for review and will be evaluated by the graduate committee.
To request this waiver, please include a letter with your application. It should include the following:
- Detailed Job Description
- Name of company/employer and contact information
- Name of supervisor and contact information
- Years employed in related field (1 year minimum)
Note: All requests will be evaluated by the graduate committee. The submission of a request does not guarantee that the GMAT/GRE will be waived.
Students seeking to be admitted into the Utah Tech University Master of Accountancy program must have earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting or have completed the foundational content from an accredited college or university (AACSB or ACBSP). The ‘leveling courses’ which make up the foundation are essential, providing a non-accounting major a comparable background for success at a graduate level. Applicants who have not completed a bachelor’s degree program in accounting are advised to consult with the School of Business Graduate Coordinator, prior to application. Program prerequisites are in place to ensure that students are prepared to succeed in the graduate program.

You will also be prompted to complete a hardship request form within the application. Application fees are non-refundable. If you are requesting an application fee waiver, do not pay the application fee while your request is under review. You should only pay the fee if you receive an email from us indicating that your fee waiver request has been denied.

Fee waiver requests are subject to review, are not guaranteed, and are not automated. Because reviews and waivers are done manually, it may take up to several weeks after the submission of your Stevens Doctoral Program application before you receive our decision (fee waiver requests will not be reviewed until the full application has been submitted). Only applicants who select one of the categories above, provide the requested information/documentation, and qualify for the waiver under that category may receive a fee waiver. Fee waiver approvals are subject to the criteria listed above.
Admission to Joint PhD Programs
Joint Program in Financial Economics
Admission to the Joint Program in Financial Economics requires admission to both the doctoral program in the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics and to the doctoral program at Chicago Booth, but interested parties need only apply to one or the other program. Students may enter the joint program at the beginning of their doctoral studies. Those seeking admission to the joint program should apply online to either the PhD program in the Department of Economics or Chicago Booth. The GRE is required for all applicants to this program.
Students enrolled in doctoral studies in either the Department of Economics or Chicago Booth may apply to the joint program at any time within their first two years in residence. Such students will still have to meet all of the requirements of both programs.
Enrollment and financial aid throughout a student's matriculation in the joint program will be administered by either the Division of the Social Sciences or Chicago Booth, as arranged by the two units. This designation will be for administrative purposes only and will not have programmatic implications. If a student's interests change, the director of the Stevens Program at Chicago Booth and the dean of students for the social sciences will facilitate transfers out of the joint program and into the doctoral program in economics or business.
Joint Program in Psychology and Business
Students interested in applying to the Joint Program in Psychology and Business through Chicago Booth should apply online for admission to the Behavioral Science dissertation area. Once admitted, students seek a faculty research sponsor in the Department of Psychology. After a faculty sponsor in psychology has been identified, admission to the Joint Program is generally automatic. Entry into the Joint Program in Psychology and Business normally occurs during the first year of study. Applicants should state their interest in the joint program as part of the application process so they can be given advice in making the connection to faculty in the Department of Psychology. Although the GRE is preferred for applicants to this program, the GMAT is accepted.
Joint PhD/JD Program
To earn the joint PhD/JD degree, you must be admitted to both the Law School and Booth’s Stevens Program. You may apply to both programs at the same time, or you may begin one program and then apply to the other at a later date.
US Military Personnel
Admitted students who are called to active duty prior to matriculation will be granted a deferral of admission and Chicago Booth financial aid to the following year. Deferrals will be reviewed/extended on an annual basis.
The Stevens Program at Chicago Booth accepts up to three courses in transfer credit from other approved institutions. These credits can only be used toward the coordinated sequence requirement. The Stevens Program does not grant credit for experiential learning or online courses.
For details on readmission, taking a leave of absence, resuming studies, academic grievance policies, and add/drop requirements, please see this Guidebook .
