Seattle University has been addressing and responding to the rapidly changing circumstances with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic both globally and in our region. Our thoughts are with everyone affected, and we hope that you stay safe.
We know you have questions so we have compiled relevant admissions information during this extraordinary time. Please continue to monitor this page for additional updates in the coming weeks and months.
For prospective students navigating graduate application requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, the GRE and GMAT testing requirements are now considered optional for anyone applying to a non-law graduate program through Fall 2022. Two exceptions remain in place. A test will still be required if you have a bachelor's degree from a non-graded institution or you have earned the equivalent of a 3-year bachelor's degree overseas.
Choosing to include a GMAT or GRE score may make your application more competitive in some situations. The Graduate Admissions team will be auditing its files and reaching out to impacted applicants regarding the change and your options. Prospective students are invited to contact Graduate Admissions anytime at email@example.com or 206-220-8010 to discuss this new policy.
Testing agencies have worked to provide alternatives to site-based tests that are unavailable currently. The latest information is noted below and we will update as we learn more.
Do not hesitate to contact our Student Financial Services Office today at 206-220-8020 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any financial aid questions. Information regarding your financial aid award will be communicated through your Seattle University email account.
