GMAT and GRE
While there is no minimum score required by the Stanford MSx Program, admitted candidates typically perform well. The median GMAT score for the Class of 2018 was 700.GMAT and GRE scores are valid for five years. Since we require the GMAT or GRE for admission, you must take the test before submitting your application. The scores you submit must be valid as of the deadline date of the round in which you apply. If your GMAT or GRE score is still valid, you do not need to take the Next Generation GMAT or GRE General Test (formerly the GRE revised General Test). If you require testing accommodations, we recommend initiating that process well in advance so they may review your request in time for you to take the test before the deadline for the round in which you wish to apply.
