GMAT Waiver Requests
Undergraduate GPA* of 3.5 or higher allows for a comprehensive review of academic performance and consideration for a GMAT waiver.
Applicants who have an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.5 from their degree-granting U.S. institution and have at least three years of significant managerial and professional experience may be admitted without a GMAT score, typically through a review of the applicant’s resume. Normally, the required experience is earned after completion of the undergraduate degree. A committee will assist, if needed, in determining if the applicant’s experience meets the “significant managerial and professional experience” threshold.
Applicants who have an undergraduate degree granted by a non-U.S. institution will not be considered for a GMAT waiver.
