Adjustments for COVID-19

GMAT WAIVER

The BYU Marriott School of Business continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and make adjustments as needed for students and applicants. BYU Marriott recognizes access to GMAT/GRE testing centers has been diminished due to regional health concerns. Therefore, candidates applying to the Full-Time and Executive MBA 2021 entering classes may request a waiver of standardized test requirements.

The BYU Marriott MBA program is committed to admitting the very best students and future leaders–those who strive for the personal and professional transformation that comes from BYU Marriott’s rigorous MBA program. We recognize standardized testing is just one piece of information in a much broader, holistic evaluation of each candidate. Please carefully consider your entire application portfolio before making your decision to apply for a GMAT waiver. Consider whether a test score may help supplement your professional and academic achievements.

All existing information on an applicant’s records will be used to determine admissions, which includes existing GMAT and GRE scores. That means that if you have sent a GMAT or GRE score to BYU, we will use that score to evaluate your application and a waiver will not be offered.

Additional important points to consider before requesting a GMAT/GRE waiver:

  • Scholarships: Test scores are often a beneficial data point (but not required) for the Admission Committee when evaluating an admitted student for a scholarship.
  • Full Time Employment: Some employers use (or require) test scores during initial screenings, particularly in finance and consulting.
