William & Mary Online MBA Admissions and Application Requirements

At the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, we seek dynamic and driven applicants who are ready to proactively make a difference in the workplace and redefine what it means to be a leader. Our ideal candidates are career-minded individuals who are open to novel problem-solving techniques, are willing to experiment and grow from failure, and who embrace the challenges and rewards of balancing work, school and family.

We accept applicants from a wide range of academic fields and professional disciplines, but all are required to have:

  • A minimum of two years professional working experience
  • A bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from a regionally accredited college or university

No GMAT Required

At the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, we are committed to holistically evaluating applicants and considering all aspects of their professional and academic backgrounds. We understand that standardized tests are not always, or even often, the best indicators of a candidate's readiness to succeed, particularly the highly accomplished professionals who apply to our Online MBA program.

For this reason, we do not require GMAT or GRE scores for admission to the Online MBA program. Applicants may, however, submit scores for consideration if they believe that doing so will be beneficial to their application.

Keep track of your next steps!

Download our complete Online MBA Application Checklist to help yourself stay on track during the application process.

Key Steps and Application Requirements

Complete the Online Application

The online application consists of:

  • Contact and background information
  • Enrollment history from all previously attended institutions*
  • Two professional references
  • Two personal essays
  • Resume/CV showing a minimum of two years of work experience

*NOTE: Please upload unofficial transcripts from all previously attended institutions to your application for initial admissions decisions. If accepted, you must submit official transcripts from all previously attended institutions before the first day of class.

Request Official Transcripts

W&M prefers electronic official transcripts, but we also accept hard-copy official transcripts. Electronic transcripts must be sent directly from the institution to masononline@wm.edu.

Hard-copy official transcripts should arrive in a sealed envelope with the signature of the registrar across the seal. DO NOT OPEN OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS. Hard-copy official transcripts must be sent directly from your academic institution or forwarded in a sealed envelope from you to the following address:

Raymond A. Mason School of Business
William & Mary
Attn: Center for Online Learning
P.O. Box 8795
Williamsburg, VA 23187

NOTE: You can upload unofficial transcripts with your application, which will suffice for the initial admissions decision; if accepted, you must submit official transcripts before the first day of class.

Schedule a Personal Admission Interview

Qualified applicants who have submitted and completed their application will be invited to schedule a personal admission interview. Interviews can be conducted on campus, via video conference or by telephone.

Pay Application Fee: $100 (or request a waiver)

The application fee may be waived for applications submitted by the priority deadline, active- duty military and veterans, W&M alumni, attendees of informational webinars, and at the discretion of the Admissions Office. Contact an Admissions Advisor to discuss whether you qualify for a few waiver.

Proof of English Language Proficiency (for Non-U.S. Citizens)

International applicants must have a TOEFL score of at least 100 if internet-based, 250 if computer-based or 600 if paper-based, or an IELTS score of at least 6.5.
