Official Test Score Reports

The part-time UST MBA program accepts GMATGRE or MBA Math scores as part of your admissions application. Each test has its advantages and disadvantages, and a member of our admissions team can help you determine which may be the best fit for you.

Official Transcript(s)

We require a bachelor’s degree in any subject from a regionally accredited U.S. institution (or the international equivalent). Original transcripts are required from all undergraduate and graduate institutions you have attended, sent directly from the institution.

If your institution offers electronic transcripts, please send them to gradadmissions@stthomas.edu. Paper transcripts must be submitted in sealed envelopes and signed by the appropriate university official. These can be sent to:

University of St. Thomas
Graduate Records - Admissions
1000 LaSalle Ave., Box 5
Minneapolis, MN 55403-2005

International Applicants: See transcript evaluation requirements listed in the following section.

Exception: Transcripts for advanced placement courses and study abroad transfer credits are not required.

Two professional letters of recommendation

Letters of recommendation may be requested through the online application. As you decide who to ask for a reference, keep in mind they will be asked to speak to the following areas within their letter:

  • Their relationship to you and length of time they have known you
  • Their impression of your ability to succeed in a graduate business program
  • Your outstanding characteristics and areas where you need to grow or develop
  • Your present impact on your organization or business
  • How an M.B.A. would influence your professional growth
  • Your complete contact information

Application Fee: $60

Upon submitting your application, you will be asked to pay by credit card or check. You can also receive a fee waiver code by attending an admissions information event.

International Applicant Requirements

English Proficiency Tests

If English is not your native language, you must submit scores from either the TOEFL or the IELTS. Our institutional code is 6110. Official score reports (not photocopies) are required. Please keep in mind that scores may take 4 to 6 weeks to arrive in our office.

Minimum Requirements:

  • IELTS: minimum overall band score of 7.0, with a minimum score of 6.5 on each of the four sections. 
  • TOEFL iBT (Internet-based test): minimum total score of 90, with a minimum score of 20 on each of the four sections. 

If you have completed an undergraduate or graduate degree at an accredited college or university in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand, you are exempt from taking an English proficiency test.
