Regents will also discuss whether to give each graduate program in the university system the flexibility to drop the Graduate Record Examination as a mandatory requirement for student admission. If regents approve the new admissions requirements, the policy will allow each graduate program in the state to establish admission standards appropriate to the program.
As explained in the agenda item: “In a world of lifelong learning and multiple career changes, many graduate students are returning for additional graduate credentials. Other students are contemplating their first graduate degree after years in a successful career that more than prepares them for graduate education. The mandatory GRE especially is unnecessary for many of these students, when they have already demonstrated their ability to do graduate work or succeed in a high-pressured, competitive environment.”
