The Graduate School urges applicants to take tests well in advance of the date the scores are needed. It usually takes at least four weeks after the exam for scores to reach the Graduate School office. Test scores should be relatively recent. Scores more than five years old (two years for TOEFL) may not be accepted.
Regardless of the test, in order to be considered official, all scores must be sent directly from the issuing source to the Graduate School. The applicant may, however, submit his/her copy of the test results to the Graduate School prior to receipt of the official scores.
One or more of the following tests may be required as part of the admissions process. Consult the application requirements page for information specific to your proposed program.
The Marquette University institution code is 1448.
