All test scores, except the TOEFL, are subject to a five-year time limitation. Scores from the Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL), required of applicants whose native language is not English, are subject to a two-year time limit.

  • Scores on the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the General Test of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) are required for admission as a prospective candidate for most graduate degrees.
  • The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) may be used in lieu of scores on the GRE for admission to some Master of Education and Specialist in Education degree programs.
  • The GMAT is required for applicants seeking admission as prospective candidates for the Master of Business Administration and the Master of Accountancy degrees.

In addition to self-reported scores you may provide within the application, entrance test scores appropriate for each application must be sent to Graduate Admissions directly by the responsible testing agency. Unofficial scores are not acceptable. Test and sub-test requirements vary depending on major and academic department. Applicants should consult the departments for specific test requirements.
