MS and MBA Graduate School Admissions

GMAT/GRE Waiver Policy

While the GMAT or GRE is required as part of the admissions process, applicants may request a waiver based on their academic performance, quantitative skills and/or professional experience and certifications.

Applicants with terminal degrees such as JD, MD, PhD or DDS, are exempt from the GMAT or GRE exam requirement. Once transcripts showing degree conferral are added to your application, the waiver will be applied.

Applicants who wish to be considered for waivers can indicate as such on their application. The GMAT or GRE waiver decisions will be based on a holistic review of the following:

  1. Undergraduate major and GPA

  2. Potential to complete graduate coursework, quantitative ability and advanced analytical reasoning skills as demonstrated through professional and/or academic experience

  3. Professional experience and certifications
    Co-op/internship experience can be considered for those without post-graduate professional experience.
