2.- Graduate Entrance Examinations
As part of their graduate admission requirements, students may be required to take one or more of the following tests:
Graduate Record Examination General Test: The General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is designed to test preparation and aptitude for graduate study. Most degree programs require the GRE for admission. For unconditional acceptance, students are usually required to achieve a score of 500 on the verbal and 500 on the quantitative portions of the GRE. Some departments also review the score on the analytical portion of the GRE. Applicants with lower scores may be accepted if other prerequisites are met with distinction as determined by the departmental Graduate Studies Committee. The GRE is taken at the applicant's own expense either nationally or by individual computerized testing which is available locally.
Graduate Management Admission Test: The Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is an aptitude test designed to measure certain mental abilities important in the study of management at the graduate level. Students seeking admission to the Master of Business Administration or Master of Accountancy programs are usually required to achieve a score of 450 or higher. The GMAT is taken at the applicant's own expense by individual computerized testing which is available locally.
Miller's Analogy Test: The Miller's Analogy Test (MAT) is designed to evaluate mental and reasoning abilities. Students are usually required to achieve a score of 50 or higher on the test. The MAT is taken at the applicant's own expense and is given at UTEP.
Test of English as a Foreign Language: The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is designed to measure proficiency in understanding the English language. Students from non-English speaking countries must score at least a 550 on the TOEFL. UTEP offers several administrations of the TOEFL throughout the year.
