GRE Information

Many of our programs require you to submit GRE scores as part of your application for admission. If so, you need to submit scores prior to your application deadline. We cannot review your application until we have received official GRE scores.

We suggest that you prepare for the exam and take it sooner rather than later so that Rush University will receive your scores before the application deadline. Your scores will be sent to the institutions you designate within 10 to 15 days after your test date.
