**Many programs have decided to make the GRE General Test optional for applicants. While optional, applicants are still encouraged to submit their GRE scores if a test has already been taken or can take the test and provide results by our application deadline, as it gives us additional information when evaluating an application.
The English proficiency testing requirement may be waived for applicants who meet any of the below criteria:
Is a citizen of Australia, Cameroon, Commonwealth Caribbean nations, Ghana, India, Ireland, Kenya, Liberia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Singapore, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and Zimbabwe.
Has completed a minimum of three years of documented study in a university-level academic program in the United States or one of the countries listed above.
Has completed a minimum of three years of documented study in an English-medium academic program in Canada, Hong Kong, or South Africa.
Based on the evaluation of your application package, we retain the right to require English testing upon arrival and you may be required to take additional English classes. If you are recommended to take English classes, the cost of the courses will be your responsibility.
