GMAT or GRE Waiver

We recognize that a standardized test is only one way to measure your potential to be successful in the UGA Professional MBA program. Applicants may be considered for a GMAT waiver or GRE waiver based on other qualifications, such as having already earned a previous graduate degree from a regionally accredited institution or demonstrated prior academic achievement combined with career experience. If you have not taken the GMAT or GRE and wish to be considered for a test waiver, please check the test waiver box in the Professional MBA waiver section of the application. A submitted application and degree transcripts are required for test waiver review.
