The non-degree category serves students who do not wish to pursue a graduate degree at UAB, as well as those who wish to begin graduate study before being admitted to a degree program. Non-degree seeking admission is available for those that meet all admission requirements or already hold a Masters degree. Students with an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher may apply for non-degree seeking admission with approval of the MBA Program Coordinator. Non-degree seeking students can take up to 12 hours of coursework, and must be cleared through the Graduate School of Management to register. Degree seeking students have priority to courses.
Because of U.S. immigration requirements, international applicants (i.e., those who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents) cannot normally be considered for the non-degree seeking category unless already residing in the United States. Immigration laws should be consulted to determine eligibility of students.
After a student has been dismissed from the UAB Graduate School, no new application for admission (either as a degree-seeking student or as a nondegree student) will be considered until at least two regular terms have passed.
Graduate Online Forms
Admission to the UAB MBA Program requires that students have completed the equivalent of a pre-calculus course with a grade of "C" or better within the past five years. If an applicant does not meet this requirement, they may be admitted with the contingency of satisfying the requirement during their first term of enrollment. We offer several options for satisfying this requirement.
Option one: Complete MA 105 "Pre-calculus Algebra" at UAB with a grade of "C" or better or complete a comparable course at another college or university and complete the course with at least a "C" grade. A placement test or other prerequisites may be required for admission to MA 105. You can call 934-2154 or visit the UAB Department of Mathematics (www.math.uab.edu) for more information about taking MA 105 at UAB.
Option two: Successfully complete two pre-calculus proficiency exams. These exams can be taken at no cost during normal business hours in the MBA office or online.
Option three: Students needing assistance in preparing for the tests can enroll in the Graduate School of Management's Foundations of Quantitative Analysis course and complete the proficiency exams as a part of that course.
- The Graduate School of Management's Foundations of Quantitative Analysis course will be offered through the UAB Graduate School of Management and is taught Pass/Fail. Students will attend class each evening reviewing basic algebra and pre-calculus that will be useful in business applications. The MBA faculty has worked with the instructor to design the class with you in mind. The course is offered each semester. Class meets over two consecutive weekends, on Friday and Sunday evenings from 5:45pm-9:30pm. The tests are available on-line or you can schedule an appointment to take them during our office hours. The fee for this course is $260 and is payable only to the UAB Graduate School of Management by check or credit card.
