Geneva College: No Need For The GRE

Preparing for the GRE, an exam typically used to determine whether a particular student is qualified or prepared for graduate studies, can be stressful and time consuming. The GRE can lend academic institutions some insight into applicants’ knowledge and critical thinking ability, but it has its limits. At Geneva College, we believe that there are many other ways to determine whether students are ready for graduate-level coursework. We allow any student with a grade point average exceeding 2.5 to enroll without submitting GRE results.

Considering Grad School

Attending a smaller college has allowed me to have one-on-one time with professors who now understand the things that interest me, and h encouraged me to pursue those interests. They’ve been able to provide helpful advice (after all, they are professors who have been through graduate school, too) and have even offered to help me look at different programs. There are a lot of factors that go into choosing a school where you will continue your education, and I’m pretty grateful that Geneva professors have taken on the challenge of helping me, even after I graduate.
