Tests + Scores

How recent should my English Proficiency Exam scores be?

Your scores need to be two years old or less. If you took the exam more than two years ago, you will need to retake it. 

Can I get a waiver for the English Proficiency Exam requirement?

We waive the English-language requirement under certain circumstances. Please see How to Apply for details. 

What are the minimum GRE scores you will accept?

We evaluate applications as a whole portfolio, not on a single criterion, and we don’t require a minimum GRE score (or a GRE score at all).

How recent should my GRE scores be?

Your scores must be five years old or less. If you took the GRE more than five years ago, you’ll need to retake the exam if you want to submit GRE scores.

Do I need to take the GRE?

No – the GRE is optional for all of our graduate programs. But you’re welcome to submit your scores if you’ve taken the GRE within the past five years. Please have the official test scores submitted by the testing service to us at institution code 2888 and use the department code that best matches your program department.
