  • Official GMAT score or GRE score*: Test date must be within the past five years. GMAT code: QK4-4F-40; GRE code: 5246

Note that this is not a promise to waive your GMAT requirement, but rather an option for you to request a waiver of this requirement. Please contact [email protected] for more details.

International Applicants

  • English language evaluation
    Applicants who have not completed a degree in a country in which English is the principal language must submit one of the following: an official TOEFL score of at least 100 (internet-based test) or 600 (paper-based test), an official IELTS score of 7.0 with no individual band score below 6.0, or a PTE Academic Score of at least 68.

  • Transcript evaluation
    All students who attended an institution outside of the United States must provide a detailed, course-by-course transcript evaluation. This evaluation is not just an English translation, but a document provided by an accredited evaluating agency that shows all grades, course titles, credit hours, United States degree equivalency, grade-point average (GPA) and date of degree conferral. A list of acceptable foreign credential evaluation services is available through National Association of Credential Evaluation Services NACES. Credentials evaluations are also accepted from AACRAO.
