Graduate admission information is presented below. International students should also check the international student admissions page for specific admissions requirements.

Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and Graduate Record Examinations (GRE)

Prospective students of the Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) or Master of Science in Taxation (MST) programs must take the GMAT and earn a score of at least 450.

Prospective M.B.A. students must either take the GMAT and earn a score of at least 450 or take the GRE exam and earn a score that is equivalent to a GMAT score of 450. You can use the GRE Comparison Tool for Business Schools to appropriately interpret your GRE scores in the context of GMAT scores. The tool calculates predicted GMAT scores based on your GRE Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores.

PLEASE NOTE: GMAT/GRE waivers are available for highly qualified applicants. Please contact the Graduate Programs Office for more information.

Applications may be submitted in advance of taking one of these tests.

The GMAT and GRE are offered continually at testing centers throughout North America and at select international sites.
