Admission Tests

For those programs requiring an admission test, in order for a degree application to be considered complete, the appropriate official report of scores must be received by the Graduate Programs Office. Whether an applicant chooses to prepare via self-study or take a preparatory course, sufficient time should be allowed to prepare for an admission test. Applicants should indicate Code No. 5410 for Meredith College on the test registration form so that an official report will be sent to Meredith College. Allow a minimum of three weeks for the official report to be mailed from the testing center.

The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) and Graduate Record Examinations® (GRE®) tests are administered as computer adaptive tests (CATs) throughout North America and at many international sites. These tests measure general verbal, mathematical and analytical writing skills. The Miller Analogies Test (MAT) is an analytic ability test requiring the solution of problems stated as verbal analogies, with a few quantitative analogies. The MAT is intended to assess the student’s ability to recognize relationships between ideas, fluency in the English language and general knowledge of literature, philosophy, history, science, mathematics and fine arts. These tests are viewed as predictors of academic success in the first year of graduate school.

Some applicants may be eligible for an admissions test waiver based on criteria determined by each program. See each program’s website for more information. Approval of an admissions test waiver does not guarantee admission to the program.
