Temporary Test Waiver Policies for Applicants Seeking to Begin Their Graduate Program in 2021

Due to the pandemic, we are temporarily waiving test requirements (GRE/GMAT/MTEL) for most graduate degree programs, and for most applicants, until September 1, 2021. In some cases, an applicant may be asked to submit test results to demonstrate that they have the quantitative, verbal and analytical skills required to succeed in the program.

In addition, international applicants may submit the Duolingo Test of English as a replacement for the TOEFL or IELTS test.

Please Note: Submission of graduate test scores is still required for admission into the following programs:

  • Applied Psychology & Prevention Science, Ph.D.
  • Business Administration, Ph.D.
  • Civil Engineering, Ph.D.
  • Criminal Justice & Criminology, Ph.D.
  • Global Studies, Ph.D.
  • Energy Engineering (Renewable), Ph.D.
  • Physics, Ph.D.
  • Physical Therapy, Ph.D.

If the graduate test required for admission is not offered in your area, or there are other circumstances preventing you from taking the test, please contact the Graduate Coordinator for your program.
