Harvard Business School will consider only one application per application cycle from potential applicants. All reapplicants, including those who were previously admitted, are required to complete the current application in its entirety. This involves creating a new application. While previous applications may be retained on file and consulted at the MBA Admissions Board's discretion, a reapplication must stand on its own merits as a complete and independent application.

A valid Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a prerequisite for admission. The GMAT or GRE needs to be test taken between the timeframes listed in the Application Process instructions.

All reapplicants must pay the nonrefundable application fee. Reapplicants do not have an advantage or disadvantage in comparison to other applicants.
