The following information is a general overview of the application materials that are needed to mark your application complete for graduate admission at University of the Pacific.

 

Standardized Test Scores

COVID-19 UPDATE:

If your program of interest requires the GRE and you are unable to take the exam due to a test location closure, ETS is temporarily offering a GRE General Test at home option. Please have your scores sent to the correct code listed below.

If the GRE online test is not available in your area, please contact your program of interest directly to submit for a GRE score waiver, which will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

 

The GRE requirement varies by program and if required, an application is not complete without the receipt of official results sent directly from the testing service. Please consult the individual program admission criteria.

Official results from the general Graduate Record Examination (GRE) must be sent directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS). See the ETS Homepage for further information on this exam.
