The GRE is only one component of the application, and other factors, in particular undergraduate performance and research experience, weigh heavily in the decision. Competitive applicants will have a total GRE score (from the general test) of 310 (1200 on the old exam) or higher (verbal and quantitative combined.) Non-US applicants, total GRE scores (from the general test) 310 (1200 on the old exam) (verbal and quantitative combined) are usually not competitive; applicants with these scores are encouraged to retake the GRE before applying.

TOEFL minimum requirements set by the University of Cincinnati are: 600 (paper-based test), 250 (computer-based test) or 100 (internet-based test).
