Standardized test application forms are available at the Counseling and Student Development Center, (808) 956-3454. Out-of-state students and applicants from international countries should write to the address designated for each examination (see pertinent section).
Individuals with visual, physical, hearing, or learning disabilities who are required to take either the GRE or GMAT should contact the Educational Testing Service for information regarding special arrangements to take these examinations.
Graduate Record Examination
The GRE and subtests may be required by some graduate programs and recommended by others. For the requirements of the individual graduate programs, consult the relevant graduate program descriptions in this Catalog. The GRE General Test (Package 1) is also required by the Graduate Division for students who have completed 25 percent or more of their undergraduate work under a nontraditional grading system. Test information is available through the Counseling and Student Development Center, (808) 956-3454. Applicants may request test registration forms directly from Graduate Record Examinations, Educational Testing Service (ETS), Box 6004, Princeton, NJ 08541-6004. Submit completed registration forms and test fees to ETS at least one month before the examination date.
Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)
The GMAT is required by the college or school for admission to the master’s program in business administration or accounting. Applicants may request test registration forms directly from GMAT, Educational Testing Service, Box 6103, Princeton, NJ 08541-6103. Submit completed forms and test fees to ETS at least five weeks before the examination date.
Since applications are not reviewed unless GMAT scores are received on time, the test must be taken no later than the preceding June for admission in the spring and no later than the preceding January for admission in the fall.
Evidence of English Language Proficiency
Applicants whose native language is not English must submit official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Academic Modules test results. The TOEFL score report of IELTS test results must be from a test taken within the last 2 years. A minimum TOEFL score of 500/173/61 (paper/computer/internet) or IELTS overall band test result of 5.00 is required. Many programs require higher scores. The minimum score for teaching assistantship applicants is 600/ 250 /100 for TOEFL and 7.00 for the IELTS.
Applicants who have completed a bachelor’s or advanced degree program within the last five years at a regionally accredited/recognized institution in the U.S., Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore or United Kingdom need not submit English language proficiency test scores.
Final admission requires submission of the official TOEFL/IELTS results. Applicants should, therefore, obtain the TOEFL Bulletin of Information early to check on the availability of the test and should take the test in time to meet graduate admissions application deadlines.
The TOEFL is administered at centers throughout the world. Applicants who wish to take the TOEFL outside the U.S. should obtain the TOEFL Bulletin of Information for Candidates, International Edition. This bulletin is generally available at U.S. embassies and consulates and at binational educational commissions and consulates abroad. Applicants may also order a bulletin directly from the representative who serves the area or country in which they plan to take the test.
International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
Applicants should contact the nearest British Council/Embassy/Consulate
or IDP Education Australia Office in their country for the nearest testing
center. It is advised that you also check the IELTS website for the most
up-to-date information for testing centers. Web: www.ielts.org.
