Test Requirements

GRE: An applicant who is not a graduate of an accredited Bachelor of Science program in engineering, mathematics, or natural science disciplines offered by a U.S. college or university must take the General Test portion of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Although the GRE is not required for applicants from accredited Bachelor of Science degree programs in engineering, mathematics, or natural science disciplines offered by a U.S. college or university, the results of the examination may serve to strengthen the application.
