The admission committee evaluates each candidate's overall credentials, including exam score, leadership qualities, academic performance, and extracurricular activities.

  2. Use one e-mail throughout the application process and ALL correspondence in order to insure proper processing by Admissions. Be aware that @163.com and @126.com addresses often have difficulty receiving emails from Pepperdine.

If you have not completed your bachelor's degree at the time of application, submit a current transcript. A complete transcript must be submitted before fall enrollment. Your To-Do List in WaveNet will show your transcript is incomplete until the final transcript with your degree posted is received. Please have the school's registrar mail your transcript directly to the Graziadio School Admission Office. If you submit the transcript, it MUST be in a sealed envelope from the university. If work toward your undergraduate degree was completed at more than one college or university, please request official transcripts from all institutions. Transcript request forms are included in the application for admission. 

    Transcripts from non U.S. universities which do not calculate GPA on a 4.0 scale (A=4.0) MUST be certified, with GPA calculated, by a NACES member agency. For certification, we recommend WES.
  6. Letters of recommendation. Candidates must provide two letters of recommendation. Employed applicants should submit letters from a supervisor or employer; non-employed applicants should include at least one letter from a professor.
