Graduate Admissions Information


The cost of the MBA Program is $495 per credit hour.

Transfer Credit

Students may transfer up to 6 credit hours from another accredited graduate school, if such hours are compatible with the program at Kansas Wesleyan University. Transfer hours must meet the academic time limit requirement of six years. Only courses in which students have received a grade of “Pass/Satisfactory” or a grade of “B” or higher will be accepted. Students are required to complete at least 24 graduate hours from KWU.

Course Load

Although students who wish to finish in one year must take two classes per eight-week sessions, students can take only one class. Please discuss with the Program Director about what is best for your situation. Students taking six or more hours per semester will be considered full-time students.

Time Limit

The MBA must be completed within six years after completing the first course for graduate credit, exclusive of active duty in the armed forces of the United States. Exceptions may be made upon appeal to the Graduate Council.

Students who maintain continuous enrollment in the fall and spring semesters may graduate by meeting the requirements in effect at the time of their first enrollment for graduate credit or any subsequent catalog. Other students must meet the catalog requirements in effect at the time of re-enrollment or any subsequent catalog. The ending date of the catalog selected must not be more than six years old at the time of completion of the degree. Portions from different catalogs may not be used to satisfy degree requirements. Students having more than six hours remaining in their program may not participate in graduation ceremonies.
