GRE scores are not required for the following applicants:
If your GPA is under 3.0 and you are not otherwise exempt, you will be required to take the General GRE. Visit the ETS web site for test locations and to schedule a test or to obtain a copy of a previous test. When taking the test, the associated school your scores should be sent to is the University of Cincinnati/College of Education, Criminal Justice & Human Learning/School of Education. If your scores are not available electronically through the University of Cincinnati, we will require the original test score report (it will be returned to you). Test scores are valid and accepted for five years after taking the test.
The program is conducted entirely in English, primarily written English, and requires strong English composition skills. It is our sincere goal to ensure that applicants are able to be successful in the program, and success requires the ability to understand and critique what others have written and for others to understand and critique what you have written. Applicants whose native language is not English and who have not received a prior degree from an institution in an English-speaking country must show adequate to high proficiency in written English. This proficiency will be judged from TOEFL or IELTS scores, the one-page essay, and other communications with the program staff, including emails. English proficiency will not be judged based on scores alone.
For IELTS, a minimum overall band score of 6.5 is sufficient. Minimum required TOEFL iBT scores are as follows, but please note that for our program, we are particularly interested in the scores for Writing and Reading and would like those to be as high as possible. If you take the test via paper, the scoring is different, and the following do not apply.
A list of exempt countries is available on UC's website. It may be possible also to request a waiver of the English Proficiency test requirement, but the applicant must be fluent in English.
