Admission Test

Testing & Required Examinations
Many graduate programs require a graduate exam as part of the application process. The application process will have a minimum score that you must make to be eligible for admission.

  • Timeline note: Schedule to take any applicable test at least one year prior to when you plan to begin graduate school. This will allow plenty of time for re-taking the test should your scores need improvement.

The following are links to the tests with more information.

  • GRE - Graduate Record Exam. The GRE® General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study.
