There is no need to submit transcripts at the time when you first apply; you may do so after admission. Once admitted, please submit transcripts from all of the colleges and/or universities you have attended where you received 15 credits or more, whether or not a degree program was completed or the credits appear as transfer credits on another transcript.

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

    *You may apply for a GMAT waiver if you demonstrate completion of one of the following requirements: more than seven years of full-time work experience, or a bachelor's degree with a GPA above 3.3 and three years of relevant work experience. 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. Not eligible for a test waiver? George Washington University applicants can benefit from 10% off any Kaplan GMAT or GRE preparation course. Use discount code GWUSB10.


International Applicants

  • TOEFL / IELTS / PTE: 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. Test date must be within the past two years. TOEFL code: 5246

  • 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.
