    Most applicants are required to take the GRE. However, applicants who have at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA or 3.2 GPA in the last half of their undergraduate credits or a 3.2 cumulative GPA for previously completed graduate studies may be eligible for admission to the master's program without taking the GRE. This decision is made by the College of Information Science and Technology after reviewing the completed application.

    TOEFL scores are required for international applicants or applicants who earned a degree outside the U.S. (minimum scores: 100/600/250). Scores will be reviewed based on section scores and total scores. IELTS scores may be submitted in lieu of TOEFL scores.
