US Universities not requiring GRE for Graduate School Admission

In this article, I have discuss the list of universities where GRE is not a requirement for graduate school admission.

Following the post on Average GRE Scores for Universities, I’m also collecting information about U.S. universities where GRE score is not an admission requirement.

There are many universities where students can get admission to master’s degree programs without the need for GRE scores.

However, there are still some departments within these universities that still require GRE scores, but the others don’t.

I will try to list the specific departments like computer science, electrical engineering, biotechnology, civil, mechanical, industrial engineering, and other programs together with the names of the universities where standard admission test scores are not required for graduate school application.

Universities not requiring GRE

  1. Saint Joseph University – Computer Science
  2. Loyola University – Computer Science
  3. University of Maryland – University College
  4. California State University, Fullerton
  5. California State University, Long Beach
  6. California State University, LA
  7. University of New Mexico – Master’s in Biomedical Science in Clinical Research, Landscape Architecture
  8. Grand Valley State University
  9. Santa Clara University
  10. California State University, San Marcos

GRE Scores Not Required: Computer Science

  1. East Stroudsburg University (PA)
  2. Bridge Port University (CT)
  3. University of Northern Virginia (VA)
  4. Oklahoma City University (OK)
  5. Purdue University (IN)
  6. Wichita State University (KA)
  7. Kansas State University(KA)
  8. Virginia State University(VA)
  9. New Mexico State University (MN)
  10. University of Dayton, Ohio (a few programs)

Now, here’s another list of universities where GRE test scores are not required or optional  for graduate school admission.

I will continue updating more details into the list of universities where GRE is not required for admission.

GRE Score for Visa Interview

Even though at few schools do not require GRE scores, during the student visa interview, the visa officer might still ask for your GRE scores.

Because of this, it’s strongly advisable to take GRE and TOEFL exams for good measure, especially for visa purposes.

Most of the comments that Happy Schools Blog receives is about suggested university to apply at. And I always suggest that everyone must get GRE scores of above 300 for some departments and 1,100 for those applying for engineering degrees.

    and can yhere be a problem if i get i 20 from these universities for visa interview?
    plz u suggest some good universities…as time is really very less and i need to apply………

    1. Hi Nikhat, As you have checked for the admission requirements at the Universities mentioned and have found GRE scores are not required you can expect admission without submission of the same. Visa will not be a problem as the University/department does not ask for GRE scores. Kindly mention which specific programme you seek admission in. For University suggestions, share profile details in the forums section.
      All the best!

      1. i am applying for ms in cs….plz let me know which is the good university in below comment…..and are these universities good enough for getting visa in inverview……

        1. Hi Nikhat, Visa is never a problem as far as you are convinced with the University choice you have made and can convince the visa officer with the same idea. Western Illinois, Northern Illinois and Wichita State University are all public Universities and thus visa should not be an issue with them.
          Just be sure about the choice you have made.
          Also try to include Universities from some other States too. As of now, I see you have chosen most of the Universities from Illinois.
          All the best!

Vamshi, It is not possible to join MBBS in usa for indian students, because we dont have sufficient education at post secondary level and they do have pre medicine course before entry to MBBS, USA & Canada does not give direct entrance to MBBS as they requires one to complete pre medicine credits and then enter into the MBBS.
      So I advise you to look into the universities which are having this courses and see the eligibility criteria, because for pre medical also they have some restrictions for international students.
      Check with the MGH Institute of Health Sciences, Boston if they accept you.
      I have my cousin brother who has just finished his final year MBBS from New Jersey,USA.

    could u suggest me any univs which are safe to my profile

    1. Hello,

      There are two types of universities in USA, one is public universities (not for profit and respective state government funding or some sort of financial support, other universities are private universities for profit, not much financial support from state governments).

      Important thing is what subject you want to study, important thing to note down here is computer science is not an engineering degree. In USA most public universities and most private universities need GRE for engineering graduate studies. If you do not want to write GRE then your chances of getting into good university with financial support are slim.

    This is my 1st semester of Masters in Electrical Engineering in Florida Institute of Technology,USA and I am planning to transfer for the next semester. The only reason is because of $7000 per semester which is very expensive. I heard a few universities like UNIVERSITY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA which conducts classes only on Saturday for 6hours in New York which is around $3000 per semester and TRIVALLEY UNIVERSITY a online course which has the same tuition range.Can u tell me which university among the both is the best? And please opt me a few universities with less tuition fee..

  100. For those interested in studying for the graduate studies in the USA, I think the GRE is an instrumental test. It is a very good idea to prepare for the GRE or to study for the GRE even if you do not take the test. The GRE broadens your mind, makes you think critically and have the ability to become a problem solver in different domains. I have never taken the GRE, but I have studied for the GRE and it was the basis for so many walks of life in the USA especially the Math and English

    1. I only know that many US and CA universities do not need GRE for admission in the CS Dept. (Like, Purdue University). However, your score directly effects on the evaluation of your application. You should also look at to your TOEFL or IELTS band score for decision making. Do not concern about your grades. Test your chance with regards to your GRE score.

    2. Hi Dude,
