Most graduate programs require the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). A few graduate programs require the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). GRE, GMAT, and MCAT score minimums are established by each graduate program. Specific graduate program requirements and deadlines can be found in our Programs of Study section.
We advise you to use your legal name as stated on your passport or birth certificate when registering for the GRE, GMAT, or MCAT exams and when completing the online application. If your name does not match exactly, there will be a delay in matching your test scores to the application data
Evidence of adequate spoken and written English is required for admission. Applicants whose first language is not English must submit an official test score from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the Examination for the Certificate of Proficiency in English (ECPE), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) scores.
Rackham’s English Proficiency Exemptions
Applicants who have earned or will earn a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree are exempt from submitting an Official English Proficiency Score if:
- The degree was earned from an institution where the language of instruction is English, exclusively. This exception does not apply if some classes completed were taught in a language other than English. Verification from the school may be required.
- The degree was earned from a country where the official language is English (United States of America, Australia, and England).
US citizenship does not automatically exempt an applicant from taking the TOEFL; if the applicant’s first language is not English.
Evidence of adequate English proficiency must be submitted by the program established deadline date.
Official scores must be reported directly to the University of Michigan from Educational Testing Services. University of Michigan’s ETS institutional code is 1839. Individual department code numbers are not necessary. As long as the institutional code of 1839 is selected, the score will be electronically delivered to the University of Michigan.
