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 on the chart below.

    If you are applying in… Your GMAT or GRE test date must fall on or between
    Round 1 September 8, 2016 and September 8, 2021
    Round 2 January 4, 2017 and January 4, 2022

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