Marshall Ph.D. Program Required Documents
All required application materials (below) must be submitted. Your application may not be forwarded to the admissions committee if it is missing any required documents. In the online application system, you will be required to fill out four sections. Please refer to the following four sections (Personal Information, Academic History, Supporting Information, and Program Materials) in which to submit your documents.
Please refer to program materials section of the Marshall Ph.D. Program Application to specify the program (accounting, finance, management, marketing, operations or statistics) you would like to pursue. Under the questions on the program materials section, you will identify your program track of interest.
The Marshall PhD program requires a complete application including valid GRE/GMAT and English proficiency scores and your scores may be self-reported when you apply. Due to Covid, we are accepting the online/home based exams and we have some flexibility to work with applicants if you don’t have a valid score by the admission deadline. If this is the case, please note planned under the GRE/GMAT and the date you plan to take the exam. If you are unable to take the exam, we could conditionally admit you but you would need a valid GRE/GMAT score no later than the fall of your first semester if admitted.
Inputting unofficial (student) score reports via the online application system is a requirement to complete the Marshall Ph.D. application. We know that you may have requested official score reports be sent to USC when you took your exams, but, unfortunately, these records are not immediately available to the Marshall Ph.D. program. Even if you have requested official score reports to be sent to USC, you still need to input the unofficial (student) score report to the online system to ensure timely review of your application.
Official test score reports will be requested of applicants who proceed to Round 2 of applications review. Round 2 decisions are sent in mid- to late-February.
If any requirements change due to Covid-19, further information will be posted on this page.
