All candidates are required to take the GMAT, GRE, or EA* exam. These tests may be taken up to two weeks after the posted application deadline for the round in which you are applying. If you are unable to take the GMAT/GRE/EA during this time, please contact our office, as we process special requests on a case-by-case basis.
COVID-19: Online Test Accepted
The Educational Testing Service announced that an online version of the GRE and TOEFL is available starting March 23rd. The Graduate Management Admissions Council has also announced that an online version of the GMAT exam will be available in mid-April and the Executive Assessment will be available online by the end of April. (Note you may submit the Executive Assessment exam for the Evening Weekend program if you have more that 8 years experience by August 2020) Berkeley Haas will accept the online version of all of these exams.
If you are planning to take the exam during the application round (either your first attempt or retaking an exam), please make sure you enter your future test date in your application, and email a copy of your unofficial score report to our office as soon as possible after the exam. All applications without an unofficial test score will be considered incomplete, and we cannot guarantee a decision by the posted notification deadline for incomplete applications.
*In addition to the GMAT or GRE, applicants with 8 or more years of work experience as of the start of the fall semester may take the Executive Assessment (EA) instead.
Remember that test scores are just one part of your application, and there is no minimum score required.
For Fall 2020 admission, we accept official scores only from exams taken on or after October 1, 2014. Berkeley Haas keeps test score reports on file for two years only.
You may send us your exam results using the following institution codes:
