Application Review Process

NYU Wagner does not require the GRE or GMAT as a part of the Master’s level application; however, GRE scores are required for all doctoral applicants.

GRE or GMAT test scores are strongly recommended for applicants who have performed at or below the suggested minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average, for applicants who have not taken or have performed poorly in previous quantitative courses, for applicants with no prior background in social science or other relevant courses, or for applicants who have been away from academic study for ten years or more. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to request scores from any applicant.  There is no minimum or average score that we’re looking for, however it would be to your benefit to score in the top percentiles in all categories in order to give your application the competitive edge for admission and merit funding consideration.

If you are submitting GRE please use ETS school code 2507 when reporting your scores. A department code is not required.

TOEFL or the IELTS are required for international Master or Doctoral applicants applicants whose undergraduate degree was not conducted in English. Unofficial scores can be uploaded into the application. Our minimum TOEFL score is 100 and the minimum IELTS score is 7.5.
