Exams and Test Prep

for Graduate and Professional School

Graduate and professional schools typically require that you take a standardized exam as part of your application. The test or exam that is needed will vary based on the program you are pursuing. It is important to know which tests are required for your programs of interest and to prepare for those exams.  


Standardized Tests

Standardized testing requirements are typically noted on the program’s website.


Test Preparation

Taking standardized tests for graduate and professional schools requires preparation and we recommend you take practice tests. Many applicants choose to take standardized tests while still in “academic mode” and may take an exam more than once.  Please check test sites and program sites to learn about testing dates, how long your scores would be valid, and about testing accommodations.
