Universities have started updating  admisison requirements page with minimum New GRE score for grad school admission.

We have looked at Minimum Revised GRE fro Illinois Institute of Technology.

In addition to IIT, Chicago, several universities have updated Minimum New GRE Score for MS and PhD in Computer Science are listed below.

Following list would give an idea about minimum GRE score requirement for Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.

This is how I would use the minimum requirements the following data

  • Check if Minimum GRE for New Scores  have changed with respect to University requirements.
  • Remember 800 in Old GRE Quantitative equals to 166 in New GRE Format.
  • Check if that conversion is reflected in the minimum requirements.

Also, use the following list of universities for your consideration. You might not have heard about some of the universities, visit respective websites to explore their Computer Science and Electrical Engineering programs.

Your Profile

  • A master’s degree in computer science or a related field with a minimum GPA of 3.25/4.0.
    A minimum GRE score of 700 for the Quantitative (Revised General Test score of 155) and 4.0 for Analytical writing scores for the general GRE, and it is recommended that results from the GRE subject area in computer science or a related area be included.
  • This is also required for any campus fellowship applications or those seeking future departmental or university funding.

Ohio State University

M.S. Computer Science

Autumn quarter is our primary quarter for graduate admissions; international applicants will be considered only for Autumn admission. In addition to a strong computer science background, a student will be considered for admission with:

  • GPA minimum 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale)
  • TOEFL (when required) minimum 550
  • GRE Verbal minimum 500 (153 new), Quantitative minimum 700 (155 new), Analytical minimum 4 (new format)
  • GRE CS subject test is strongly recommended for those whose undergraduate degree is not in computer science

For admission in all other quarters, only domestic applicants will be considered. More stringent objective criteria are in force:

  • GPA minimum 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale)
  • GRE Verbal minimum 650 (163 new), Quantitative minimum 700 (159 new), Analytical minimum 5 (new format)

University of Massachusetts Amherst

  • The GRE test is required. The subject test is strongly encouraged by the Computer Science Department
  • Although standardized tests are by no means the only criteria considered, historically successful applicants average 600+/4.0 in each of the three areas (verbal, quantitative, written). Based on the new scale we expect the average would be 160+ (verbal), 155+ (Quantitative), 4.0 (Written).
  • GRE’s can be retaken. Your new score will be added to the old score you’ve previously submitted. Both scores will be included in your application.
