OU Graduate Programs require applicants to have taken the GRE. Required minimum scores will vary by program. Applicants come from varying educational and cultural backgrounds and the GRE revised General Test provides schools with a common measure for comparing candidates' qualifications.

GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters, and other qualifications for graduate-level study.

If there are no spots available in multi-purpose, you have four options:

  • Park in the multi-purpose parking lot and ask for a parking tag at the front desk if you are a NON-OU student. 
  • Park at the Jenkins Parking Garage & walk to the Boomer Outreach building or OU designated parking for OU students.
  • You can ride a bike or walk to the testing center.
