Admission and Financial Aid
The Graduate School of Commerce seeks well-rounded individuals who bring exceptional intellectual capabilities along with a
passion for their own chosen field. The admissions process looks for evidence of competitive academic performance, work and life
experiences, and qualities of character such as motivation, maturity, tenacity, integrity, ability to work with others,
self-reliance, and leadership.
All applicants are considered without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, political affiliation, disability,
age, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
All foreign students, whose first language is not English, are required to take the Virginia English Proficiency Examination upon
arrival in Charlottesville. This is not a substitute for the TOEFL examination required for admissions.
All candidates are encouraged to visit the McIntire website (www.commerce.virginia.edu) to obtain detailed information on the
individual graduate programs, admissions requirements and procedures, and to take advantage of the online admission services.
Please see individual program descriptions for information on specific admission and program requirements.
