How to request a GMAT/GRE Waiver:
  1. Submit your application.
    GMAT/GRE waiver requests must meet specific criteria (above) 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.” Be sure to include all requested documentation. NOTE: In order to submit your application, you must include a placeholder test date on the Test Score section.
  2. Submit all application documents.
    GMAT/GRE waivers are evaluated utilizing application materials; therefore, the review process does not begin until all application documents are received.

If you have any questions about the process or categories, please contact Courtney Mazzuca (cvmazzuc@uncg.edu).

A very limited number of GMAT test fee waivers are available to students facing financial hardship. Students must have applied for admission to a Bryan School graduate program and have official transcripts on file with the Bryan School Office of Graduate Admissions to be considered for a GMAT fee waiver award.
