Graduate programs at the University of Delaware each have their own unique admission requirements, funding options, deadlines, review processes and decision timelines. Understanding how your program of interest structures each of these areas is key to having a productive and positive applicant experience. Please read carefully the information contained on the webpages below and thank you for considering the University of Delaware as your partner in education.
Update as of September 1, 2011.
Applicants should request all official test scores be reported directly to the University of Delaware. Please know that the ETS University of Delaware institution code is "5811." YOU ONLY NEED TO SUBMIT THE UNIVERSITY CODE OF 5811. NO DEPARTMENT CODE IS NEEDED FOR OUR INSTITUTION.
Our experience is that it takes 3-4 weeks from the time an applicant requests test scores from ETS for them to be received electronically. If it has been that length of time, the next most common error is the applicant mistakenly placed the wrong date of birth or gender when entering test information. Please check your test report to see if this has caused an error in downloading your scores.
The most important thing to know about the GRE at the University of Delaware is that it is an admission requirement set by the graduate programs themselves. If you would like to know whether your particular program of interest requires a GRE and/or what scores they consider acceptable for consideration, please check the program’s website. For those who took the GRE more than one year ago, you can see a new table comparing “old” GRE scores with the “new” GRE scores. For all applicants, if your program requires a GRE test then, once you are inside the online graduate application, you will be prompted to enter either self-reported test scores or the date you plan on taking the GRE.
For applicants: View the GMAT® Program Code List or request for official test scores online at mba.com. GRE & GMAT test scores are only valid for five years from the test date until the date your application is received. Waiver of these tests can only be made by a request from the faculty admission committee to the central graduate admissions office at the time of acceptance. If your program requires a GMAT test then, once you are inside the online graduate application, you will be prompted to enter either self-reported test scores or the date you plan on taking the GMAT.
For graduate programs: The Next Generation GMAT launched in June 2012 and will contain a new section called Integrated Reasoning (IR). Only the IR component has a "new" reference scale, so no new concordance table will be needed for the other components.
