Lubin Bridge Program
Any international student whose undergraduate degree is not equivalent to a four year U.S. baccalaureate and who has not completed a master’s degree may seek admission by means of the Bridge Program for International Students. The purpose of the program is to provide supplementary coursework to those students with strong academic records who are judged capable of successfully completing a graduate certificate or the MBA/MS so that they meet the four year equivalency requirement for graduate study. Applicants should use the regular online or print application for Graduate Applicants - Masters Programs. The GMAT or GRE is required for Admission.
Once the applicant’s eligibility for the Bridge Program for International Students has been determined, a course of study of up to 30 credits designed to remedy the applicant’s academic deficiencies and to prepare the applicant for the graduate program will be outlined. Up to 15 credits of post-baccalaureate course work taken by the applicant either abroad or in the U.S. may be applied toward the 30 credit bridge requirement as determined by the Office of Graduate Admission in conjunction with the Lubin School of Business.
If a student is admitted to the program, a Bridge Program Agreement and Bridge Program Course Outline describing the required premasters course work will be sent with the letter of acceptance. The admitted student is required to sign and return the Bridge Program Agreement as a condition of acceptance and is bound by the requirements stipulated.
Upon completion of the Bridge Program, students with a grade point average of 3.0 will be permitted to continue on in the graduate program; those with less than a 3.0 will be dismissed.
