Several of our graduate programs do not require test scores for admissions consideration. 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, as strong candidate for graduate admission typically has:  

  • 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 scores 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
