You may apply for a GMAT waiver if you meet EACH of the following requirements:
- At least a 3.5 cumulative, or most recent 60-hour, GPA
- At least a 3.5 upper-level accounting GPA (prerequisite courses)
- At least a 3.5 business core GPA (prerequisite courses)
- At least three upper-level accounting courses completed
To apply for a waiver, email all of your unofficial (pdf) transcripts and an updated resume to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject = "GMAT Waiver Request." Our admissions committee reviews each request individually and strives to have a response to you within two weeks of your request. Note that meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee a waiver.
Transcripts from non-US schools need to be converted to the US 4.0 scale using a member of the NACES. Study abroad classes taken at a non-US school included on your US school transcript do not need to be converted.
The GMAT waiver for UofSC-Columbia students is tied to the B.S./MACC Accelerated Program requirements. Students qualifying for the Accelerated program receive the GMAT waiver.
To determine if you qualify for the GMAT waiver and Accelerated program, please email email@example.com with subject = "GMAT Waiver and Accelerated Program."
