Can I apply for admissions without a GRE score?

    The general GRE is required, although the subject GRE is optional. Except in rare circumstances, the general GRE score is required as part of your application. Please be sure to take this exam and arrange to have your score sent to us as part of your completed application. The Admissions Committee looks at several factors in evaluating applications, including the GRE scores.

    A rare circumstance might be a Ph.D. applicant who has been awarded a previous Ph.D. or M.S. degree. If you feel your circumstance warrants consideration of waiver of GRE general exam, submit an explanation in writing to the associate dean for academic programs.

    Please note that University of Arizona undergraduates applying to graduate programs are required to complete and submit the GRE general test scores.
