GMAT/GRE Waiver Policy and Request Form
You may be eligible for a GMAT/GRE waiver if you meet one of the following conditions:
- three years of relevant, post-bachelor, full-time professional experience with demonstrated career progression, or
- a graduate degree from an accredited institution, or
- via iMSA faculty and administrator assessments of completed coursework performance. You must complete two 4-credit hour courses within the iMSA program as a non-degree student before application or admission to the degree program. You can take Accy 501 in conjunction with one of the following courses: Accy 502, Accy 503, Accy 504, Accy 505, or Accy 570. The two courses must be taken in no more than two consecutive semesters. Faculty and administrator assessments will be completed at the conclusion of each course, and assessments will be final in determining whether a GMAT waiver is granted. Credits earned can be applied to the iMSA if admitted to the degree program.
To apply for a waiver, please submit this form. We will evaluate if the standards for a waiver have been met. Meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee a waiver will be granted. You can submit this form at any point during the application process, including prior to starting an application.
