If you hold a Bachelor's Degree from a University-recognized institution, you are eligible for graduate school admission to Keller. If you are an International student applying from outside the United States, you need to hold a degree recognized as equivalent to a U.S. baccalaureate degree to be eligible for admission. You also will need to fulfill Keller's English-Proficiency Requirements, as all instructions and services are provided in English.

  • Achieving an undergraduate GPA higher than 2.50 on a 4.0 scale
  • Submitting acceptable Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test scores
  • Submitting an acceptable Keller-administered test score

If your undergraduate GPA is below 2.50 on a 4.0 scale, you must achieve acceptable scores on the GMAT, GRE or the Keller-administered admission test. The Keller-administered test may be completed, by appointment, wherever our graduate programs are offered, or through the University's Assessment Center. GMAT and GRE test scores are valid up to five years from the date of the exams.

Applicants whose demonstrated proficiency indicates they are prepared to enroll directly into their program's standard coursework without any preceding prerequisite skills coursework are referred to as placing at the standard level.

Selected programs have additional program-related prerequisite skills requirements, which are noted in the program descriptions and in the Graduate Academic Catalog.
