If an MBA from the University of Iowa is your goal, and you have time to complete the GMAT/GRE prior to the application deadline, apply for full admission to secure the benefits enjoyed by admitted students:
- Advance priority registration
- More financial aid availability
- Greater enrollment flexibility
This is a simple way to "try out" the Professional MBA Program, or to get a quick start if you haven't yet taken the MBA entrance exam. It allows you to:
- Enroll in the same classes as admitted students
- Earn graduate credit that counts toward your degree upon admission
- Benefit from the same faculty, staff, and level of support as admitted students
You can take up to five (5) courses in PreMBA status; to continue after that point, you must complete the full admission process.
