Application Materials and Instructions
|APPLICATION CATEGORY||SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS|
|Program of Interest||Select: College of Arts & Sciences > Geography and Environmental Studies > Geography > MS Geography|
|Test Scores||The Department does not have minimum requirements for GPA and no longer requires GRE scores. However, most applicants we accept have a minimum GPA score of 3.5 and minimum GRE scores of 153 for verbal and 144 for quantitative. Lower scores do not necessarily prevent you from getting accepted and higher scores do not necessarily mean you will get accepted. Scores are important but we look at the entire application when making our decisions.|
Applicants for whom English is not a native language need to provide current English proficiency test scores (such as TOEFL, IELTS, or other). See guidelines from the UNM Global Education Office.
