GRE Waiver

The online M.S. in Cyber Security program accepts new students in the fall, spring and summer terms. Applications are processed as they are received, and prospective students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Admission into this program requires a satisfactory score on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), however, the GRE requirement may be waived under certain conditions.

The requirement is automatically waived for all applicants that have already completed a master, doctoral, or law degree at an approved university.

  • Applicants who have taken the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Law School Admission Test (LSAT) within five years of the date of initial enrollment may submit their score(s) for consideration as a substitute for the GRE.
  • Experienced applicants who can clearly demonstrate post-baccalaureate scholastic achievement through other means such as patents, professional licensures and certifications, refereed publications in industry-specific journals, expert testimony, company technical reports/analyses, or other documented evidence of career advancement and developing expertise, may petition the evaluation committee for a waiver of the GRE requirement.

The following additional conditions apply:

  • It is the responsibility of the applicant to request the waiver.
  • Petitions must be accompanied by all required documentation.
  • The waiver petition form must be submitted no later than four weeks prior to the start of the semester in which the applicant intends to first enroll in the program.
  • The waiver petition, along with all required documentation, must be submitted in electronic form to grad-ga@utulsa.edu.
  • The petition only applies to the master of science in cyber security professional track program.

The waiver petition will be evaluated as soon as possible but generally within 10 business days of receipt of all required documentation.

If the waiver petition is denied, the applicant must take the GRE prior to enrolling. It is the applicant’s responsibility to schedule the test and pay the required fee. Applicants are advised that it will be difficult to achieve a satisfactory score without preparing in advance. Study guides and other preparation materials are available from a variety of commercial sources.

Whether the GRE waiver is granted or not, the applicant may still be required to complete one or more leveling courses prior to enrolling in courses.
