For 2021 Applicants Only – GRE Accommodations Due to COVID-19
In response to the test accessibility issues caused by COVID-19, the Whiting School of Engineering (WSE) has decided to make the GRE exam optional for the 2021 admissions cycle. This only applies to graduate applications for the following start terms: Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Fall 2021. For those applicants that have GRE scores ready, we will accept them. Please note, there will be no admissions advantage in submitting GRE scores. Likewise, there will be no disadvantage to any applicant for not submitting GRE scores. Our programs engage in holistic admissions review, and we expect many competitive applications will not include GRE scores this year.
The Engineering School's Office of Graduate Admissions is actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. This crisis does not impact how the Whiting School evaluates applicants. We will continue to review applications and proceed with offers of admission as usual. Stay safe and be well.
