Graduate Entrance Exam Testing Alternatives

In response to closed testing sites due to COVID-19, some CSULB graduate programs are temporarily waiving the GRE exam as an entrance requirement for the Fall 2021 application cycle. Please check with your Department Graduate Advisor to see if GRE or other standardized testing is required for Fall 2021 applications. 

Note that many standardized testing companies are working to provide alternatives for in-person testing to minimize health risks. Please visit our Graduate Entrance Exam Testing Alternatives page for more information.
