Official Test Scores
GMAT test scores are valid for five years, and the admissions committee will consider your higher score if you have taken the test more than once. GRE scores are only valid for five years (from original test date to submission of UConn application). We usually receive an electronic score report within 5-7 days after you have taken the test and a paper score report approximately two weeks after you have taken the test. For those programs where the GMAT/GRE score is required, an official decision can not be made on your application until the official scores are received by the university.
GMAT/GRE waivers vary by program. Please refer to the Test Scores Waiver Policy.
If you are applying to the Ph.D. program there is NO waiver of the GMAT/GRE. It is an admission requirement for all applicants to the Ph.D. program within the School of Business.
Please contact the program to which you are applying for any questions regarding GMAT/GRE test score waivers.
