The Graduate School minimum undergraduate grade point average is 2.75 out of 4.0. Some graduate programs may have higher GPA requirements for admission consideration.
If you were educated outside of the United States, an equivalent U.S. grade point average will be calculated as part of the application review process. We do not require applicants to submit credential evaluations like WES or ECE.
Individual departments or programs may require the GRE, GMAT, or MAT. Most programs do not have minimum score requirements. Instead, test scores are viewed as one factor in the context of a student's overall application file. Because these tests are required by departments rather than by the Graduate School, contact your program of interest for more information about GRE, GMAT, or MAT test scores. If you take the GRE test and want to send us your official test scores, our ETS Institution Code is 1463.

Sometimes. Log into your Application Status page and review your Application Checklist section. If the status is "awaiting" and the recommender has not started yet, you will see an option to "Edit this recommender" or "Add recommender."
