Admission into graduate programs at the Sellinger School of Business and Management (PMBA, ELMBA, MSF, MACC and Accounting Certificate) requires applicants to supply an official GMAT or GRE score. However, under certain conditions, the GMAT or GRE may be waived. Contact an admissions advisor at email@example.com for more information or download the GMAT/GRE waiver petition form.
Applicants who wish to be considered for a GMAT or GRE waiver must:
- Meet at least one of the classifications below.
- Request the GMAT/GRE waiver using the check box on the online application form.
- Complete a GMAT waiver petition form
- Supply the required documentation and submit the petition form to an admissions advisor.
- Submit a complete application file before the waiver request will be considered.
An interview with an academic advisor may be required. Petition for GMAT or GRE waiver does not guarantee approval and is considered by the Admissions Committee in conjunction with an applicant’s complete admissions file. The admissions committee reserves the right to require a GMAT or GRE score from an applicant even if the basic conditions are met.
