Academic Requirements

Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

To be considered for admission, the applicant must satisfy the following requirements:

  • The applicant must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution.
  • The applicant must be in good standing.
  • The applicant must submit standardized examination scores (GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, and/or IELTS)
  • The applicant must be recommended for admission by the graduate faculty in the applicant’s area of study.
  • The applicant must disclose all institutions beyond secondary school, including Auburn University, which the applicant has previously attended;


With few exceptions all applications or proposals for funding must be submitted through either Auburn University, or Alabama A&M University, since, if approved, they will commit Extension, and therefore university, resources to be used for specific purposes. In general proposals should be submitted through the university with which the project director is affiliated.
