    Get Started with your DeVos Graduate School Degree

    Individuals who want to be considered for one of the DeVos MBA and MS programs must hold a four-year, U.S. baccalaureate degree or equivalent from a regionally accredited institution. To be considered for admissions, a candidate must submit a complete portfolio for evaluation. A candidate’s portfolio must consist of:

    1. Complete a DeVos Online Application here. (Create an account first, then complete the application)

    2. Current verifiable resume or curriculum vitae (CV)

    3. Official Undergraduate Transcripts

    An official transcript from all undergraduate and graduate institutions attended, including the institution where a baccalaureate degree was awarded are required. Photocopies or student-issued transcripts are not acceptable for admission. You may submit an unofficial copy of your transcript for review; however, DeVos still requires an official transcript to make an admission decision.

    To meet graduate school application deadlines, please allow adequate transcript processing time. Registrars should send official transcripts in sealed envelopes directly to the graduate school.
