MBA Course Requests for Carnegie Mellon University Graduate Students
The process listed on this page applies to Carnegie Mellon University graduate students (other than Tepper School graduate students).
As a Carnegie Mellon graduate student, you may take a maximum of four Tepper School courses (24 units) throughout your academic career. The Tepper School of Business MBA program requires that as a Carnegie Mellon graduate student, you have your advisor and faculty approval for all Tepper School courses.
Please complete the following steps in the following order so that your request is handled in a timely manner.
Read these Instructions for Graduate Students Requesting Tepper MBA Courses [.pdf] before proceeding.
You are not enrolled until all four steps are completed.
Log your request for all interested courses by logging into MyTepper. (See detailed instructions for logging your request in the pdf above. Mozilla Firefox is the preferred browser.) Review the list of available courses. You can take up to two courses per mini and up to four courses throughout your academic career.
Your advisor will receive a link, where he/she can approve or deny your request.
You can check the status of your request by logging in to the request system. If the course is visible, your advisor has not yet approved it. It is your responsibility to make sure that your request is approved by the Tepper School’s deadlines, which differ from the university’s.
It is your responsibility to contact the faculty teaching each course to seek approval for registration to join the course. Once you have faculty approval, you must forward the approval to email@example.com or Marilyn Hersh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is your responsibility to ensure that there are enough allowable units on your schedule (SIO) to accommodate the units to be added from the Tepper School.
After advisor and faculty approval have been received, you will be placed on the internal Tepper School roster or waitlist. You will receive an automatic email regarding your status. Approximately two business days after receiving the email from “add/drop,” check the SIO. If the course appears on the SIO, you are successfully registered. If you do not see the course after three business days, contact email@example.com.
Should you need to drop a Tepper School class, you must do so by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org OR Marilyn Hersh at email@example.com by the Tepper School add/drop deadline. If a class is dropped after the deadline, the class will count as one of the four courses you are permitted to take throughout your academic career.
