Academic advising, registration, and more

Whether you're enrolled in the Professional MBA Program, or pursuing your MBA online, your academic success is important to us. Each Professional MBA location and the Online MBA program has a dedicated site/program director who is your academic advisor, available to guide you through the program and answer your questions along the way. They'll help you choose courses and map out a timeline that'll help you graduate on schedule (a schedule you get to decide). Explore this section for details about the academic side of the Iowa Professional MBA and Online MBA programs.

Readmission policy

If you're not enrolled in any Professional MBA or Online MBA courses for three consecutive semesters—including a spring, summer, and fall (winter session doesn't count)—you'll need to apply for readmission. The readmission application is shorter than the typical app and carries a small fee.

How to apply for readmission: Apply through the Application Portal. Select "Readmission" in the admission type field.
