* Cumulative UNC-Chapel Hill GPA may not be rounded (e.g. 3.398 does not qualify) and must include at least three semesters of full-time UNC-Chapel Hill studies with at least 36 credits completed and graded at time of MAC application submission date. Alumni must have had their UNC-Chapel Hill undergraduate degree conferred within five (5) years of MAC application submission date. Alumni who graduated more than five years ago should apply via the GMAT waiver process. In rare instances, the Admissions Committee may request additional information to evaluate your analytical aptitude and experience.
** The 3.00 GPA calculation must be the non-rounded, cumulative GPA as stated on the final transcript from the degree-conferred institution. You may achieve this GPA from either your accredited undergraduate or accredited graduate institution. (Individuals with a GPA below 3.00 and who have extraordinary work experience may also apply for the GMAT/GRE waiver. Please contact email@example.com to learn more.) Your five years of work experience must be full-time (30 hours/week) with a progressive career path. Military duty, full-time internships, and graduate degree studies may count toward the five years of experience. You may submit your request with fewer than five years; however, this time threshold must be met prior to Orientation and Leadership Immersion (OLI) for your intended start date. Applicants with relevant or analytical experience receive higher rates of approval. Meeting the 3.0 GPA and five years of work experience criteria does not guarantee a waiver will be granted. Each applicant is reviewed individually and all application materials are considered when granting a waiver.
