GMAT/GRE Waivers

GMAT/GRE Waiver requests must meet specific criteria (below) and are reviewed during the application process.  The test score waiver request form is found in your application as part of the Degree Program section.  The form is titled “Entrance Exam Waiver Consideration Request.”  In order to submit your application, you must include a place-holder test date on the Test Score section.

Please read waiver requirements carefully and select the best-fit category. Be sure to include requested documentation.

Waivers are evaluated utilizing application materials; therefore, the review process begins when applications are otherwise complete.

If you have any questions about the process or categories*, please contact Jillian Joncas (jbjoncas@uncg.edu).

*You may find one waiver category listed below (A Bryan School of Business and Economics major AND a graduating UNCG GPA of 3.3 or above) does not yet appear on the waiver form in the application.  In this is the case, please upload a brief statement requesting a GMAT Waiver per said category to the Supplemental Documents section of your application and alert Jillian via email to view your request.

Waivers may be available for:
  1. An applicant who is a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma honor society with a minimum 3.3 GPA out of 4.0.
