To qualify for a GMAT or GRE waiver, applicants must meet at least one of the following requirements:

  • A master’s degree, doctorate, or professional degree (J.D., M.D.) from an accredited institution, OR

With this in mind, Santa Clara Law offers multiple deadlines during each application cycle that allow you more time to fully prepare documentation, submit recommendation requests, complete financial aid processing, and more.
