Graduate Admissions Checklist

Applicants are more than their paperwork – which is why qualified candidates are invited for in-person or SKYPE interviews after all materials are received. Below is a checklist intended to help with the admissions process. It is recommended that your application be submitted within 30 days of creating your account, thereby providing you sufficient time to focus on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). Contact the UofL MBA Office with any questions via telephone 502-852-7257 or email
