Administrators implemented the policy because of "limited" GRE testing opportunities in light of the ongoing pandemic, the public health school website states.

Officials announced that the Milken Institue School of Public Health’s master’s and graduate certificate programs will not require incoming applicants to have taken the Graduate Record Examination.

Students will still have the option to submit their GRE if they want their scores to be considered with their application, according to the announcement. Prospective students who wish to enroll any semester between fall 2020 and fall 2021 qualify for the policy, which administrators implemented because of “limited” GRE testing opportunities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students applying for the Master of Science in epidemiology program who intend to pursue a doctoral degree in epidemiology are still required to submit “valid” GRE scores, the public health school’s website states.

Graduate school entrance exams like the GRE, Graduate Management Admission Test and Law School Admission Test haveĀ transitioned online as the pandemic continues.
