Do I have to take a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam if I am an international applicant?
The Auburn Graduate School requires minimum English proficiency scores for international students.
Applicants may qualify for an exemption depending on official government language and medium of instruction. An Australian applicant, for example, may not be required to submit an official TOEFL or IELTS score. However, a resident of Quebec, Canada, would.
Exemptions are handled on a case-by-case basis, but we generally process the exemption for an international student who received an undergraduate degree from an accredited U.S. institution.

The Online MBA program mirrors that of the Campus MBA. We film the campus courses and then stream them online to our students across the world. Students in the Online MBA program take the same courses and have the same professors, assignments and exams. View our online course curriculum.
Online MBA students are only required to come to campus once at the end of the capstone course (BUSI 7316).
Online MBA students are invited to, but not required to attend, New MBA Student Orientation that takes place the week prior to the start of classes.
View the Auburn University academic calendar for class start and other key event dates.
Students in the online program can take as many hours each semester as they feel comfortable. But since the program is lock-step, the courses must be taken in a specific order no matter the course load. The MBA must be completed within six years of admission.
