Applying to Tippie's business analytics programs

Application requirements, fees, and instructions for the master's degree and certificate programs are slightly different. In both cases, a bachelor's degree from a U.S. college or university, or an equivalent degree from another country, is required.

Because our programs are classified as part-time, the university cannot sponsor international students for F-1 student visas or J-1 visas. I-20 or DS-2019 documents will not be provided.

Minimum requirements

You need to meet these two criteria to be considered for admission:

  • Completed bachelor's degree or higher
  • Undergraduate GPA of at least 2.5 (certificate) or 3.0* (master's)
  • United States citizenship or permanent residence, or a non-citizen with a valid visa and legal status to be in the U.S.

See below for a full list of what's needed to apply.

Application deadlines

Deadlines are the same for both the certificate and the master's.

  • Fall 2017 session—July 30, 2017
  • Spring 2018 session—December 30, 2017
  • Summer 2018 session—April 30, 2018

GPA requirement exceptions

If your undergrad GPA is below the 3.0 minimum for the master's, apply to the certificate program instead. The university lets you use the grades earned in your Business Analytics Certificate courses to meet the GPA requirement.
