Alumni Support

Graduate Student and Academic Services annually teams up with the Center for Alumni, Parents and Friends to offer the Graduate School Summit as a means of connecting current students with esteemed alums.

In addition, alumni of the Bentley Graduate School are encouraged to continue graduate study in one of the following ways:

Special Student Application: Non-Degree Seeking

  • Graduate School alumni may take up to two courses without matriculation to a degree program by applying for special student status. 
  • Graduate School alumni that have completed up to two courses as a special student may apply to a graduate degree program using one of the application processes outlined below. Please contact Graduate Admissions with any questions regarding this process.   
  • Some courses taken as a special student can be applied toward a degree upon admission to the Graduate School of Business. Check with Graduate Student and Academic Services professional advising staff for more information on specific degree requirements.

Abbreviated Application: Degree Seeking

  • Graduate School alumni must have a 3.2 (or higher) cumulative GPA from the Graduate School when submitting the abbreviated application.
  • Graduate School alumni must have received their graduate degree within five (5) years of submitting the abbreviated application. Please contact Graduate Admissions with any questions regarding this process. 
  • Students seeking merit or non-merit based aid must take the GRE/GMAT.
