Test Score and Waiver

Do I qualify for a GMAT test waiver?

You qualify for a test waiver if you have a 3.75 GPA from any recently completed degree program. Please note, this is the ONLY waiver or exception offered. Consider applying to our Professional MBA if you would like your work experience (two or more years of full-time work) to be considered in lieu of the GMAT.

There are no exceptions to this requirement, regardless of work experience, a 3.75 GPA of a partially completed program (unless it is your first bachelor's and you have no other degrees), or a GPA close to but still below a 3.75 GPA.

Can I submit previous test scores?

Yes, as long as the test was taken within the past 5 years; scores older than that will not be considered.

Can I submit scores from other standardized tests?

We prefer the GMAT but will consider standardized exams (such as GRE, MCAT, LSAT, PCAT) previously taken in the past five years on a case by case basis. If you have a question about submitting a test score, please send an email to rawlsgrad@ttu.edu.

What test score do I need to achieve?

We don't have a set minimum or maximum requirement for test scores. We review students holistically, taking into account test scores, essays, undergraduate GPA and transcripts, letters of recommendation, and resumes.

I still have questions, who can I contact?

E-mail rawlsgrad@ttu.edu or call 806-742-3184.
