GMAT/GRE scores

GRE scores should be sent directly from the testing provider to MTSU:

  • GRE Institution Code: 1466
  • GMAT: 6ZR-KJ-07

The GMAT/GRE requirement may be eligible to be waived for applicants that meet any of the following conditions:

  • An earned bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university with GPA of 3.0 or higher. International transcripts must have an official evaluation by a NACES member.
  • An earned bachelor’s degree with a GPA of 2.75–2.99 and five or more years of professional/managerial work experience (resume required for confirmation)
  • An earned graduate or professional degree from a regionally accredited college or university


Your resume should highlight relevant qualifications, skills, educational background, and professional experiences. It will also act as documentation to waive the need for GMAT/GRE scores due to professional experience.

We want to get to know you, your career goals, and how our online M.S. in Finance can help you move forward in your desired field. Your personal statement is your opportunity to list your expertise and accomplishments, and illustrate why you think you’re a good fit for our program.

Digital transcripts may be sent to askgrad@mtsu.edu.

You may also be able to order your transcripts electronically through the National Student Clearinghouse or Parchment. These sites will send your transcripts directly and quickly to the College of Graduate Studies.
