Final deadline: June 30 for our Professional, Hybrid and Executive MBA programs.

Standardized Test Waiver Information

If you have an active application for the Full-Time program and want to be considered for a GMAT, GRE or EA waiver, you can submit a Standardized Test Waiver Request via the Test Score section of your application. Test waivers are only valid in the cycle they were obtained in. You can expect to hear the results of your waiver request as early as ten business days after submission.

If you feel that your work history and previous coursework are not good indicators of your readiness for the Full-Time MBA program, you should consider taking the GMAT, GRE or Executive Assessment. It is important to note that if you are approved for a waiver, your application package will contain one less component for evaluation. Please be sure to include meaningful data, details, and information that will add value to the assessment of your application in lieu of a test score.

Waiver Requirements

Candidates who are interested in a test waiver for the Full-Time program must have an active application for the current cycle. Standardized test waivers are approved on a case-by-case basis. For consideration, candidates must submit a Standardized Test Waiver request, have a minimum of three years of professional post-undergraduate work experience and at least one of the following: 

  1. Completion of a Bachelor's or Master's degree, with strong academic achievement in a STEM or quantitative subject area.
  2. A terminal degree (e.g. MD or PhD)
  3. A quantitatively oriented professional certification (e.g. CPA, CFA)
  4. Other graduate level standardized test scores demonstrating comparable quantitative ability (e.g. MCAT).

For Professional MBA and Hybrid MBA applicants, we require a standardized test however, if you feel you have sufficient reasoning for a test waiver, such as a terminal degree, a master's degree or more than 3 years of work experience, you may submit your application without a test score. There is an opportunity to explain this in your application. If you submit without a score, the admissions committee reserves the right to request a test score after review of your application.

Executive MBA Candidates: If you are applying to the Executive MBA program, we do not require a test score but you may submit a valid test score if you have one. 

Please Note: Full-Time MBA applicants must have a standardized test score or an approved waiver in order to submit your application. As such, please submit your standardized test waiver request with enough time to be assessed before your desired application deadline.
