This will only take a moment.
International applicants must have successfully completed the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree to be eligible for admission to the William & Mary Online MBA or Online Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) programs. To apply to either program, you will need to submit copies of both your academic record and either the diploma or other documentation indicating the date and conferral of your degree. If the original language of the academic record and diploma is not English, a certified English translation must accompany the original document, and the translation should be literal rather than interpretive. If a certified copy of the original transcript is submitted, the institution from which the degree was received must certify it. Documents certified by a notary public are not acceptable. Credentials must include the following information:
If you were provided with only one official copy of your transcript, you may submit a photocopy. If you are admitted, you will be required to submit the original to the Online Admissions Office for authentication.
Please note that you may be required to submit your official academic records to an independent credential evaluator, if necessary.

Those applicants who have not completed a degree within the United States, who have not earned a university degree in an English-speaking country (this does NOT include English-speaking institutions in non-English-speaking countries), or who have not lived and worked full-time in an English-speaking country for the past two or more years must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or the Pearson Test of English (PTE).
The TOEFL/IELTS/PTE requirement is waived for those candidates who earn both of the following:
On average, incoming students score 100 (internet-based), 250 (computer-based) or 600 (paper-based) on the TOEFL and a 6.5 on the IELTS. TOEFL and IELTS scores are valid for two years. We consider the applicant's TOEFL, IELTS or PTE score along with their GMAT scores in the Verbal and AWA sections, essays, and the admission interview to determine a candidate's language readiness to succeed in and contribute to the William & Mary MBA and MSBA communities.
William & Mary's Institution Code for TOEFL is 6987.
Both the Online MBA and Online MSBA programs are comprised of courses that have been tailored to meet specific learning objectives, courses which support a specific sequential pattern of skills development. Because of these unique program designs and course structures, direct course equivalents may not always exist outside of William & Mary's own programs. However, students may request that an outside course be reviewed as a possible substitute, subject to the following:
Note about transfer credits: To ensure credit will be granted, students should seek approval for transfer credits prior to enrolling in the course they would like to have waived. To obtain approval for a course, students should contact the Program Director. Transfer credits are not included in the student's cumulative grade point average because only the credit transfers, not the grade. A minimum grade of "B" (a B- is not acceptable) is required for all transfer courses. All transfer credit hours must be posted on the student's record before they are eligible to graduate. If an official transcript is not received in time to process transfer credit in the semester a student intends to graduate, a revised Notice of Candidacy for Graduation form must be submitted for the following semester, at which time the student will graduate.
Students with prior service in the Armed Forces of the United States may present a Joint Services Transcript or other documentation to the Program Office for transfer consideration. Equivalencies to William & Mary courses rarely exist, but where they do, credit may be granted with departmental approval. When reviewing these requests, the Military Guide from the American Council on Education will be consulted, but its recommendations do not automatically apply.
