Transfer Credit and the Auburn MBA
As a top ranked program, Auburn MBA Programs is very proud and excited about the courses and curriculum we offer. We hope that you have chosen to pursue an MBA with Auburn for our fantastic faculty, courses, and the Auburn experience. We believe that when a student transfers credit in to the program, that they are missing out on a unique Auburn experience. We want all students in the MBA Program to have a full Auburn experience that includes a complete Auburn MBA. Because of this, we allow students to transfer in up to six credit hours (or two classes) that will be applied towards elective credit. We do not accept transfer credit for core classes.

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.
