MSRE in Sustainability

Admission Requirements

ADMISSION CRITERIA
Admission to the MSRE - Sustainability concentration program is based upon the completion of the general admissionrequirements of the Graduate School. For MSRE program admission a score on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) acceptable undergraduate academic performance are required. Multiple criteria are used to make admission decisions. Unconditional acceptance is based on consideration of all the information listed below and the decision to deny admission is not based on any single criterion. Applicants are encouraged to submit with their application a resume that highlights professional and personal accomplishments, linguistic abilities, computer expertise, and leadership experience. A standardized test score (GMAT or GRE) will not be the sole criterion for admitting applicants or the primary criterion to deny admission to the MSRE program. Along with grade point average and GMAT or GRE scores, admission criteria include the following:

  1. An undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale, as calculated by the Graduate School, is typical of a successful candidate. The grade point average is calculated on your undergraduate degree using approximately the last 60 hours. A graduate grade point average is used in the index when it is a 3.0 or above and based on at least 24 hours. This will be integrated into a formula or index that multiplies the GPA by 200 and adds the resulting value to the GMAT Score. An index score greater than 1120 is typical of a successful candidate.
  2. Either the GMAT or the GRE will be considered for an admission decision. GMAT sub scores greater than the 30th percentiles are typical of a successful candidate. A GRE quantitative percentile greater than the 40th percentile and Verbal percentile greater than the 40th percentile is typical of a successful applicant.
  3. International applicants must submit a score of at least 550 on the paper-based TOEFL, a score of at least 213 on the computer-based TOEFL, a minimum score of 40 on the TSE, a minimum score of 6.5 on the IELTS, or a minimum TOEFL iBT total score of 79 with sectional scores that meet or exceed 22 for the writing section, 21 for the speaking section, 20 for the reading section, and 16 for the listening section to meet this requirement.
  4. Grades in specified undergraduate business and non-business courses (math, accounting, economics, statistics, for example)
  5. Educational objectives and quality of written expression of the application essay
  6. Letters of recommendation from two persons familiar with the applicant's academic background and/or work experience
  7. Undergraduate major
  8. General and specific program accreditation status of degree granting institution
  9. Professional work experience
  10. Professional certification or licensure

MODE OF ADMISSION
Unconditional Admission
For unconditional admission, the applicant's composite total form the index must be 1120 or higher or GRE Quantitative and Verbal subtest performance must exceed the 40th percentile and items 1 through 5 above should strongly indicate potential for successful academic performance as a graduate real estate student. Students who are unconditionally admitted, have a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 3.25 as calculated by the Graduate School (or 3.25 at the graduate level), and enroll for a minimum of six semester credit hours will be eligible for available fellowship and/or scholarship support. A standardized test score (GMAT or GRE) will not be used as the primary criterion for determining fellowship and/or scholarship eligibility.

Probationary Admission
For an applicant with an index score below 1120 or GRE Quantitative and/or Verbal subtest scores below the 40th percentile, probationary admission may be available when at least three items of 1 through 5 above strongly indicate potential for successful academic performance as a graduate real estate student. Items 6 through 10 will also be used to identify positive indicators for admission. Students who are admitted on probation will have one or more conditions specified, such as no grade less than 'B' for the first 12 hours of graduate study.

Provisional, Deferred and Denied Admission
A provisional decision to admit may be granted when the applicant meets criteria for unconditional or probationary status but one or more applicant credentials are incomplete. A deferred decision may be made when an applicant's file is not sufficiently complete to make a final admission decision. For an applicant with an index score less than 1100 or GRE Quantitative and/or Verbal subtest scores below the 40th percentile, and at least three items of 1 through 5 indicate lack of potential for academic success as a graduate real estate student, admissionwill likely be denied. However, all applicant data will be carefully reviewed before an admission decision is made.
