First, please fill out the "Intention to Apply Form", attach one copy of your resume, then fax or email to the address below. This form will serve as a placeholder while you are accumulating all of the information required by the graduate school and the Executive MRED program.
Responding with this form does not obligate you to join the program nor does it guarantee admission to the program. Because class size is limited, we want to ensure that individuals will not be closed out of the program simply because they are waiting on application materials.
Then apply to the Auburn University graduate program at http://www.grad.auburn.edu. (Go to the section for Prospective Students, choose “Apply Online”).
The Executive MRED program admissions committee will review all applicants as applications are completed. Selection is based on meeting admission requirements, information supplied on the application, the personal interview, and comments from references.
We want to admit the best students, so our program's admissions policy is flexible.
Each applicant must have the following:
-A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university
-At least three years of full-time experience in real estate development or a related field such architecture, landscape architecture, planning, construction, or finance; or five years of full-time professional experience after receiving their bachelor's degree.
-A completed Auburn University graduate school application (www.grad.auburn.edu)
-Pay the graduate school application fee ($60 for domestic students & $70 for international students) online with a credit card or send a check payable to Auburn University
-Two copies of official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate programs that you have attended. If you are given the option to expedite the transcripts to Auburn University, please do so. This process often takes the most time and could hold up the acceptance of your application for admission to the program. In addition, delay of transcripts will hold up any financial aid application that you might make.
-Complete the Executive MRED application form online.
-Send remaining application materials to:
