Most graduate and professional programs require applicants to submit test scores from at least one graduate admission test as part of the application packet. It is important that you familiarize yourself with the specific requirements of each school you’re considering, as the particular test (or tests) you will need to take may vary among them.
The Office of Career Services partners with Kaplan to offer test preparation courses on Elon’s campus each semester for the GRE, LSAT and MCAT. Check the "News" section on our homepage for current information on free information sessions and registration details for test prep classes as they are scheduled.
The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is the most commonly accepted among the tests, as it has the broadest application.
In addition to the GRE, schools may also require GRE Subject Tests, which are specific to certain academic disciplines. Subjects include:
The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is required by most business schools, although an increasing number are now accepting the GRE as well. Check with your school to confirm requirements.
The MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) is required for admission to medical school.
The LSAT (Law School Admission Test) is required by law schools for admission to juris doctor (J.D.) programs.
