If you do not meet these criteria, you may still request a Test Waiver. Click the GMAT waiver request box on the application portal and upload a brief document with the reason for the request. Waivers are highly selective and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

For Rutgers University undergraduate seniors graduating May or December:

If you have an overall GPA of 3.30 or better and a job offer to start after graduation, we will waive the test requirement. May graduates will be applying for the summer term and December graduates will be applying for the spring term. When applying, click the GMAT waiver request box on the application portal and upload the offer letter.  

* International transcripts without a GPA must be evaluated by a NACES member ( https://www.naces.org/ ) such as WES.

Please be aware that receiving a GMAT or GRE test waiver does not guarantee acceptance into the Part-Time MBA program.

Supplying a test score may benefit you in the admission process. Please consider thoughtfully the benefits of taking the GMAT or GRE exam and contact us for more information.
