Admission Requirements

Students who wish to enroll in the Palumbo-Donahue School of Business should apply through the Duquesne University Office of Admissions, 600 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15282. Phone: 412-396-6000.

Acceptance of all international students will be contingent upon the successful completion of the Duquesne University English Placement tests and any required English language course work. This may involve at least one semester or more of course work until such time as the student's English proficiency sufficiently improves to take undergraduate classes.

Students transferring from a school of business that is accredited by AACSB International must present an overall quality point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or better. For other students, including those transferring from another school within the University, an overall quality point average of 2.5 or better, an overall quality point average of 2.0 or better in business courses, and a grade of C in Calculus.

Full details about the acceptance of transfer credits are available in the Transfer Credit portion of this School of Business Undergraduate Catalog. 

Exceptions will be made if students are enrolled in a school with an established articulation agreement with Duquesne University. If extenuating circumstances exist, students may petition the Student Standing Committee. For further information, students should consult a Student Success Coach.
