Graduate Entrance Exam Testing Alternatives

In response to closed testing sites due to COVID-19, many CSULB graduate programs are waiving the GRE exam as an entrance requirement. Please check with your Department Graduate Advisor to see if GRE or other standardized testing is required for Fall 2020 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.
