All applicants must pay a non-refundable application fee of $65. The fee is to be paid by credit card on the online application site when you submit.

MAC Applicants are not required to take the GMAT. Please arrange for official reports to be sent directly to Villanova University (Program Code: 8PP-NJ-48). We do not accept the GRE score in place of the GMAT. The Admissions Committee will consider your highest score if you have taken the test more than once. For more information about the GMAT test and how to register, please visit www.mba.com.
