The MS Finance program is pleased to offer a GMAT/GRE waiver for UH main campus undergraduate students. To qualify, students must have graduated from the UH main campus within 3 years preceding the term for which they are applying with a minimum GPA of 3.6. Applicants should note that this offer only waives the submission of GMAT or GRE scores from the application process but does not guarantee admission to the MS Finance program. The GMAT/ GRE tests offer a way for students to demonstrate their readiness for the MS Finance program, especially for students whose educational backgrounds are in areas outside of Finance.
