Application Requirements

GRE Test Scores

GRE (Graduate Record Examination):

All applicants to programs requiring the GRE* must submit GRE test scores earned within five (5) years of the desired term of entry. Official scores must be submitted to USF directly from the Educational Testing Service, but applicants may provide unofficial copies of their test scores to expedite the processing of their applications. Any admission granted using unofficial scores will not be finalized until official scores from ETS are received.

The institution code for USF is 5828 and applies to all tests administered by ETS.

For Graduate Programs that require the GRE, the Personal Potential Index (PPI) may be required. Refer to individual program admission requirements for information.

*In special cases, the GRE requirement may be waived at the discretion of individual graduate programs. Please contact your program of interest directly for additional information.
