GMAT/GRE Waiver

Individuals applying for admission to the Penn State Great Valley MBA, Master of Finance, Master of Professional Accounting, or Master of Professional Studies in Data Analytics may be eligible to waive the GMAT or GRE.

Requests for GMAT/GRE required score waivers are possible for qualified candidates. Factors considered for granting a waiver include an applicant's quantitative, analytical and communication readiness for graduate study as evidenced by junior/senior GPA from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or a post-secondary degree that is equivalent to a U.S. baccalaureate degree earned from an officially recognized degree-granting international institution, progressive work experience and/or leadership experience.

Please note: If your degree is from outside the U.S and you are requesting the test waiver, you must provide a course-by-course evaluation indicating the U.S. equivalent of your academic credentials by ECE®. Those with military service may request a waiver.

Applicants who earned membership in Beta Gamma Sigma (the business honor society recognized by AACSB), professional certifications including a CFA, CFP, CPA, FRM, and/or CMA, or doctoral degrees (e.g., Ph.D., M.D., or J.D.) qualify for automatic GMAT/GRE waiver. Please provide the supporting documents in your online application.

If you feel you meet the above criteria, you can request a waiver on the online application, indicating the basis for your waiver request. For more information, schedule a call or one-on-one appointment with an academic program manager.

The GMAT/GRE waiver does not guarantee an affirmative admission decision.
