Florida Southern College offers a GRE/GMAT waiver option



COVID Waiver Policy

Florida Southern is offering additional support for Fall 2021, Spring 2022, and Summer 2022 applicants, by waiving the GRE/GMAT for graduates from regionally accredited institutions with any major who have a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA.


Apply for Waiver

The GRE and GMAT help assess whether applicants have the quantitative, verbal, and analytical skills required to succeed in our graduate business programs. However, Florida Southern recognizes that some applicants may be able to demonstrate their potential to succeed in a classroom without either of these tests.

Qualifying managerial experience is determined at the discretion of the Admission Committee.

All GRE/GMAT waivers will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
