Entrance Testing Requirements

Graduate admission may require that the applicant submit qualifying scores on an appropriate entrance exam. These exams are the Graduate Record Exam General Test (GRE), the Miller Analogies Test (MAT), and the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Only those scores that are less than six years old will be considered. Student copies of test scores are not considered official. The entrance exam and qualifying score depend on the program the prospective candidate wishes to enter. In addition, several Teacher Education degree programs require Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators (GACE) tests. The GACE tests required and exemptions depend on the education program. Copies of GACE scores are acceptable for admission.

Several entrance tests required for admission to graduate programs are administered by the North Georgia Testing Office. Visit the Testing Office website www.northgeorgia.edu/testing/ for tests administered, test dates, costs, and registration.

Some, but not all, graduate programs at North Georgia allow an exemption for the entrance test requirement if evidence of a graduate degree is submitted.
