Information for Non-Matriculated and Visiting Students

Students with an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better may take up to two courses in one semester as a non-matriculated candidate. All requirements for matriculation must be satisfied upon completion of the non-matriculated semester. Admission as a non-matriculated student does not guarantee full admission to the MBA program as a matriculated, degree-seeking candidate.

Visiting Students may attend Marist with permission from their home institution.  Please complete and submit the MBA for Visiting Students application in BusinessCAS.  We will also require you to upload a letter of approval from your home institution, an unofficial copy of your graduate transcript, and resume in BusinessCAS.
