An undergraduate degree in business is not a requirement; qualified students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The admission decision is based on a combination of a student’s undergraduate academic performance, relevant professional experience, and letters of recommendation.

Atlantis University’s master’s degree programs are taught in English and Spanish. English proficiency is required if a student’s primary language is not English; this can be established by passing the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum TOEFL score of 500 must be achieved on the written format or 173 on the computerized version. TOEFL scores will be sent from ETS/TOEFL to the campus at the request of the student. Fees for having test scores sent to the campus by the TOEFL testing office range from $17 to $29 and are paid for by the student. The institution will assist students in expediting this process. AU maintains a list of Prometric centers/testing sites where the TOEFL is administered in the area.
Please see the admissions department for more information.
Official transcripts and any other documentation must be forwarded directly to the school by the granting institution.
