GMAT/GRE Waiver Policy

While submission of GRE/GMAT scores is recommended, interested candidates for our Full Time One-Year MBA program may request a test waiver from the MBA Admissions Committee.

To qualify, one (or more) of the following qualifications must be met for consideration:

  • One or more years of professional work experience post-graduation, with and undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher, conditional on the major. 
  • Military service with an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher, conditional on the major.
  • Undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher, conditional on the major.
  • Hold a masters, doctorate, or terminal degree or be in enrolled in such a program in good academic standing.

To be considered for a GRE/GMAT waiver, candidates submit their graduate school application for review. Under the personal statement section, add a 2nd answer which lists a brief position statement on the GRE/GMAT waiver so the MBA Admissions Committee can review. All waivers granted by the MBA Admissions Committee must be approved by the University of Kentucky Graduate School. Please note, the GRE or GMAT is required for scholarship consideration.
