Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on GRE testing, the majority of Graduate Center programs are suspending their GRE requirements for 2021 applications (both Fall 2021 and, where applicable, Spring 2021 applications).
The following programs will continue with their regular GRE requirements:
- Biochemistry (optional)
- Computer Science
- Mathematics (General GRE remains required; however, the Subject Test requirement is suspended)
- Physics (optional)
All other programs who usually require GRE scores will be suspending them. Each program’s admissions committee may request additional writing samples or interviews as an alternative means of assessing your qualifications. If you have already taken the exam, you may upload your scores as usual.
TOEFL and IELTS requirements are not suspended.
Please check our deadline and requirements chart for a complete list of program requirements. Contact us in the Office of Admissions with any questions you have about testing, or anything else as you consider your graduate school options.
