Minimum GMAT Requirements

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is administered as a computer adaptive test in cities nationwide by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). All applicants except those possessing an M.D., J.D., or Ph.D., are required to successfully pass the GMAT exam and submit their scores to Xavier. Anyone considering applying is urged to complete the GMAT prior to the start of classes. You can find information about registering for the exam by clicking here.  We also accept the GRE in place of the GMAT scores.  An assessment equivalency chart provided by ETS is used to determine GRE equivalency to the GMAT total requirements for admission consideration.

Total GMAT scores lower than 470 are not accepted. However, if an individual achieves higher than a 470 it does not guarantee admission. The total GMAT required for each applicant varies based upon the following formula: Undergraduate G.P.A. x 200 + Total GMAT = or is greater than 1070 points. Additionally, the following must also be achieved specific to the GMAT score: a minimum quantitative score in the 25th percentile and analytical writing score of a 3.0 or higher.

Xavier University offers GMAT test preparation workshops on campus each semester. The workshops are designed to review basic algebra and geometry, to familiarize candidates with the test format, and to give general test-taking strategies.
