Admissions Policies

As you complete your application, please be aware of the following Tuck admissions policies.

Tuck expects that the work contained in your application—including essays and all accompanying materials—is completely accurate and exclusively your own. Content should not be provided by outside sources, such as consultants.

Letters of recommendation are to be completed by the recommender and no one else.  Drafting, writing or translating your own recommendation, even if asked to do so by your recommender, is inappropriate and a violation of the terms of our application process and Tuck's Academic Honor Principle.  Applicants are expected to inform recommenders of this policy.

Tuck reserves the right to verify all information contained within your application and recommendations. Tuck further reserves the right to rescind any offer of admission should it discover any misrepresentation or omission occurred in the application process, or if it learns that you have engaged in behavior prior to matriculation that indicates a lack of judgment or integrity. In some cases, Tuck may require an applicant to provide additional verification of the information and documents submitted as part of the application, and/or may require authorization for the release of such information. If an applicant is unable or unwilling to do so, Tuck reserves the right to cease consideration of the application, to withdraw an offer of admission already made, and/or to terminate a student's enrollment.

All applications and deposits must be received in the Tuck Office of Admissions or Office of Financial Aid on the due date specified (5:00 PM EST/22:00 GMT). Please review the Important Dates posted on this website.

All applications and supplemental materials submitted become the property of the Tuck School of Business and will not be returned.

MBA Holders

Tuck does not accept applications from individuals who have already earned an MBA. If you hold a similar graduate degree (not an MBA) from another country, we will consider your application; however, you must provide us with an additional essay explaining why you need an MBA in addition to your current degree.
