*For those students who’ve earned an Undergraduate and Master’s Degree outside of the US: To be considered for a GMAT waiver an official course-by-course evaluation (listing grades and overall GPA) will need to be submitted from an approved NACES evaluation service provider.  Applicants commonly use WES or ECE.  Along with your evaluation, you will also need to submit official transcripts/marksheets from your institution or notarized “true & attested” copies of originals are also accepted upon submission via US mail.
