Official score results from authorized examinations are required by the program to which you are applying. GRE and GMAT scores are valid for five years from the time originally taken. TOEFL and IELTs scores are valid for two years from the time originally taken.

Non-native speakers of English with international transcripts, regardless of U.S. citizenship, must validate proficiency in the English language. Applicants may submit a satisfactory score on a language proficiency test. If the TOEFL is the chosen test, the minimum required score depends on the form of the exam taken (internet based – 79, or paper based – 550). A score of at least 6.5 is required on the IELTS. A score of at least 53 is required for the PTE. The language requirement also may be fulfilled by completion of INTERLINK, the intensive English language program located on UNCG’s campus (uncg.interlinkesl.com) through Level 5. The English language proficiency requirement may be waived if the applicant is a graduate of a university in a country where English is the official language.

Important note! The GMAT has changed vendors, and consequently there have been changes to the test, the reporting, and the testing centers. Please check the web information offered by the Business Administration department.
