STEP 2: ENTRANCE EXAM

Applicants who are required to take one or both portions of the entrance examination will be scheduled to do so.

Applicants, who possess an Associate’s Degree or greater from an institution in the United States at the time of applying, are automatically exempt from taking the math and reading portions of the entrance exam.
Students who have completed the equivalent of an Associate’s degree abroad are automatically exempt from the math portion of the exam but may be subject to taking the reading portion.
Additionally, applicants who meet at least one of the criteria in each section below will be exempt from the respective entrance examination section(s):
EXEMPTION FROM READING:
