Take the GRE and TOEFL/IELTS tests

You will need to complete both the GRE and TOEFL/IELTS tests and submit your scores by April 1st. If you submit your application by November 15th and successfully complete steps one & two, CMU-Africa will pay the registration fees for these tests and provide you with practice materials to prepare.

  • GRE: You will need to upload your test scores and transcript from ETS when you receive them, to your application. Most of our students scored a total of 300 and above for both the quantitative and verbal reasoning sections.
  • TOEFL/IELTS: You may take either the TOEFL or IELTS test. You will need to upload your test scores and transcript when you receive them, to your application. While there are no minimum requirements, most of our students score more than 90 in TOEFL and 6.5 in IELTS.
  • TOEFL/IELTS exemption: Only for applicants who have undergraduate degrees from U.S., UK and Canadian universities.

If you have taken the tests before applying to CMU-Africa, upload the scores and transcripts as you apply, and we will advise on whether you need to take the tests again.
