The McClure School requires a score on either the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Applicants with at least three years applicable experience may have the GRE/GMAT waived, at the discretion of the Graduate Admission Committee if proof of ability to succeed at graduate work is supplied (such as a written professional report). Also required: TOEFL scores for international students, a one page Personal Goals Statement, and a resume.
The Office of Graduate Studies will forward material to the McClure School graduate director who will screen applications to determine if the minimum requirements for admission to the program have been met.
The graduate director will screen applications to determine if the minimum requirements for admission to the program have been met. These requirements include:
There is no minimum GRE/GMAT score, however this score will be considered as part of the entire application. To be considered for university financial assistance in the residential program, international students should have good TOEFL and GRE/GMAT scores.
The final screening is done by the ITS graduate committee which ranks qualified candidates based on academic record, professional experience, GRE/GMAT, recommendations, and in the case of international students, TOEFL scores. The graduate committee makes all applicant acceptance (unconditional or conditional) and applicant rejection decisions.
