GRE and GMAT Exam Updates!
GMAT/GRE waiver requests will be considered for applicants who meet one of the waiver criteria listed below. Applicants will make the waiver request during part 2 of the application process (completing the MBA program application) and at that time must also select the waiver option they believe they meet. Meeting the below criteria does not guarantee a GMAT/GRE waiver.
To be considered for a GMAT waiver, applicants must have earned a:
- Previous graduate degree or higher with a 3.0 cumulative GPA* or higher; OR,
- 3.25 cumulative undergraduate GPA* plus 5 years of professional work experience; OR,
- UTC undergraduate business major or other AACSB university business major with a 3.0 cumulative GPA* and 3.2 cumulative GPA* within an AACSB business major (defined as upper level courses in business).
Additional waiver options available through June 30, 2021:
- Completion of an undergraduate degree in mathematics, engineering, computer science, nursing, physics, or chemistry with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; OR,
- Completion of the UTC Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics (four courses) with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
*Note: Applicants must have a degree conferred prior to UTC determining they meet any waiver involving a GPA. Any applicants currently working on coursework toward their degree will not be considered for a waiver or admission until after a final official transcript is submitted indicating degree conferral.
