For the 2021 academic year, the admissions office will be accepting applications without GRE or GMAT scores. Due to the global impact of COVID-19, applicants will be able to submit a waiver request to the admissions office. In doing so, it is crucial to note the Admissions Committee will rely more heavily on other areas of an application to determine academic preparedness. For more information on submitting a waiver, check out this blog post.
