*A letter submitted to meet specific program requirements may be used for admission to the Graduate School to satisfy this admission requirement.
5. Test Scores
Students who previously took a nationally standardized aptitude examination, such as the GRE, MAT, or GMAT, shall submit official test score(s) with the Application for Admission. No time limit is established on test scores for admission to Graduate School. (However, most scores are available for only five years.)
In order to forward official test scores to our office, please give the testing center the following location code:
GRE: 1296 GMAT: 1B-1-RF-48 MAT: 1141
Submission of the completed application, application fee, official test scores, letter of recommendation, and official transcripts normally completes an application for admission. When the application for admission has been processed, the appropriate Graduate Admissions personnel will inform applicants of the action taken. Admission to the Graduate School does not imply official admission to a specific graduate program. For admission to a particular program of study, students must refer to program admissions guidelines for additional specifications and requirements.
Unaccredited or Otherwise Accredited Student Admission
Students must submit an official transcript(s) with degree(s) posted at least one term prior to the desired date of registration. The appropriate academic college and the Graduate Council will evaluate all submitted transcripts using commonly accepted practices and guidelines. The applicant will be required to submit a copy of the college’s catalog and other information as needed. Only upon the approval of the Graduate Council may a student begin taking graduate courses at Troy University. Should the student be inadvertently (without the University knowing that the baccalaureate degree is from an unaccredited or otherwise accredited institution) admitted into classes prior to baccalaureate degree approval and the evaluation indicates that the student is not eligible for admission, the student will be withdrawn from the class or classes, or receive non-degree credit for the class or classes for which he/she is improperly registered. (Note: Students seeking advanced degrees in teacher education or nursing programs must hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university.)
International students must contact email@example.com to determine their eligibility for admission to TROY University.
Students who are eligible must fill out the Online Application for Admission and submit official transcripts evaluated by the AACRAO or Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc.,official TOEFL score, letter of recommendation, graduate entrance test score and documentation of visa status to TROY at the above address. All official documents must be received and approval obtained by TROY Online admissions prior to enrolling in any courses with TROY.
