The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is required for any Masters of Arts in Counseling applicants whose undergraduate cumulative or final 60 hours GPA is below a 3.0 (minimum of a 2.75 is accepted for probationary admission).
GRE Testing Centers The GRE can be scheduled at any Sylvan Learning Center or another location provided on the Educational Testing Service website when registering for the exam. All applicants required to take the exam are required to schedule the exam and pay for it on their own. The test fee is approximately $185, but a fee reduction is available dependent upon eligibility as outlined on the ETS website and below.
Study Resources Study materials and practice tests are available for use at the Townsend Memorial Library for all applicants. Materials can only be checked out by current UMHB students, and anyone else using these resources will have use of materials only in the on campus library.
GRE Fee Reduction Certificate ETS offers a limited number of GRE Fee Reduction Certificates on a first-come, first-serve basis. Individuals meeting the eligibility requirements will be required to pay 50 percent of the full test fee.
