Q: Are applicants required to have a work history?
A: No
Q: Is the GMAT or GRE required?
A: No
Q: Is the application process different if I would like to take classes mainly at JBLM instead of the Lacey campus?
A: No, you would follow the same application process, just choose "Fort Lewis" as the campus location on your application.
Q: Are the full range of classes offered at JBLM?
A: No, the classes are offered in a cycle, one each term. Those students joining the cycle of classes after the "beginning" can supplement the courses they take at JBLM with courses from the main campus.
Q: Is the program accredited?
A: Saint Martin's University is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. The MBA program is currently seeking accreditation from ACSBP.
Q: How will I know if I am required to complete any pre-requisites?
A: The acceptance letter for admitted students states which, if any, prerequisite courses are required.
Q: How long does the program take?
A:  Most students take six terms (three semesters) to graduate if they take two courses a term. However, this depends on how many prerequisites are required and how many courses a student takes each term. For example, students requiring no prerequisites who start in August 2014 can expect to complete their degrees by December 2015 if they take two courses a term.
Q: If I stop taking classes, how long do I have before I must reapply?
A:  Students who do not enroll in classes for over one academic year will have to resubmit an application and application fee in order to reactivate their student record.
