Frequently Asked Questions
Many students have similar questions about our school and programs. If your question cannot be answered here, please contact us!
Q: How do I check the status of my application?
A: Once you apply to RowanGSBS, you will be contacted weekly with what items are outstanding to complete your application. If after receiving your weekly application update, you still have a question or concern about a particular item, please email us. If you have not yet applied but starting sending items such as test scores or transcripts, we recommend submitting your application to get confirmation as to what items have been received by our office since we cannot easily track individual documents without receiving a submitted application.
Q: Can I fax my transcripts and/or letters of recommendation?
A: No, we cannot accept faxed transcripts or letters of recommendation. All transcripts must be official and therefore sent directly from the issuing institution. Some schools participate in electronic submission of official transcripts which can be sent to our email directly from the issuing school. Letters of recommendation can be sent via mail or email. If they are sent via email, please be sure it is sent on official company letterhead with an original signature (not a typed name) and come directly from the letter writer’s official business email address.
Q: I have a degree from another country, do I need to submit a credential evaluation such as WES?
A: Yes, Students with credentials from a foreign institution must have that credential evaluated by a NACES approved evaluating agency at the time of application. Evaluation must indicate that the student has earned the equivalent of at least a US bachelor’s degree.

A: No, there is no on-campus housing. However, there are many affordable apartment complexes within walking distance, please view our housing section.
