Additional Admission Requirements. An applicant who holds a baccalaureate or professional degree from an unaccredited college or university is required to submit scores from either the GRE or the GMAT. All applicants whose cumulative point-hour ratio for all previous undergraduate and/or graduate academic work is below 3.0 are required to submit scores from either the GRE or the GMAT, depending on the graduate program to which admission is sought. For these students, admission will not be considered until test scores have been received.
