Several of our graduate programs will not require admissions test scores for students applying for the Summer 2022, Fall 2022, and Spring 2023 terms. Here you can view which programs will require a GRE, GMAT or MAT test score for graduate admissions consideration. 

If your program requires a test score, you will need one of the following admission test scores to qualify for admission: 

  • A minimum total score of 300 on the GRE and a minimum score of 3.0 on the analytical writing portion
  • A minimum total score of 410 on the MAT
  • A minimum total score of 500 on the GMAT 

Please note, department standards may be higher, so these minimum requirements do not guarantee admission to the UAH Graduate School. For more information regarding specific admissions requirements to your program of interest, contact your program coordinator
