Applicants for graduate study must hold a bachelor’s degree from an appropriately accredited college or university, and demonstrate the motivation, ability, and preparation needed to pursue graduate study successfully. A determination of this capacity will be made by the graduate program director and/or the respective Academic Dean, based upon records of undergraduate achievement, prior graduate work (if any), scores on required standardized tests (GRE, GMAT, etc.), letters of recommendation, and other information. Official transcripts and test scores must be sent directly from the appropriate institution to the Office of Graduate Admissions of Gannon University.
Each of the programs has its own requirements with regard to standardized admission tests. Please refer to the individual program descriptions for the appropriate tests or contact a graduate admissions representative. An applicant who already holds a graduate degree is not required to take an exam when applying to a Gannon master’s degree program. The results of standardized tests should be sent directly to the above office from the test administrator.
