No. You must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). No other test scores are acceptable. These scores may not be more than five years old.

You can still apply and you will be considered with courses in progress, even if your degree has yet to be conferred. We strongly recommend that you have most of the pre-requisite courses successfully completed by the deadline of the admission cycle you are applying for.

Your acceptance is provisional and is contingent upon your successful passing of each pre-requisite course.

The letters of recommendation can be uploaded to the application or sent to the Office of Graduate Programs:

Applications for each admission cycle (March 1st/Summer, April 1st/Fall, October 1st/Spring) are reviewed one week after the deadline.
