GMAT Waiver Policy for Current Purdue University Students

Only available for MS Accounting Students

The GMAT waiver criteria is outlined below for current Purdue University students. If interested in being considered for a GMAT waiver, students will be required to apply by the End of round 2 (Priority Round) by sending an e-mail to with the subject line “MS Accounting GMAT Waiver Requesting Waiver Consideration.” Waiver requests will be considered at the time of application and waiver decisions will be communicated within 10 days of submission.

To be eligible for waiver consideration, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Undergraduate Accounting major at Purdue University with a graduation date prior to the start of the MS Accounting program
  • If a student has a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher, the admissions committee will strongly consider a request for a GMAT waiver. If a student with a cumulative GPA lower than 3.6 can provide a compelling case as to why the GMAT should be waived, the admissions committee will meet to consider a GMAT waiver approval.
  • GMAT waiver eligibility can not be determined until the Admissions Office has received and reviewed an official transcript.

Students who meet these requirements but still wish to take the GMAT to enhance their applications are encouraged to do so.
