Although the GRE is required for admission to the doctoral program, and the GRE or MAT is a requirement for admission to the master's program, it is not the only criterion when considering an applicant for admission. Please visit the GRE website for information regarding the GRE. Both exams are offered daily in some areas.
UMass Lowell does not have a qualifying score for the GRE or MAT. The exam is one factor of many when considering a student for graduate admission.
Information on degree requirements is available at Criminal Justice Graduate Program Admissions Requirements.
There is an option for students whose undergraduate GPA is below the required GPA of 2.8 (needed for the certificate and master’s programs) which will increase their chances of getting into our master’s program. First you can take two courses, as a non-degree student in one of our certificates and get Bs or better then apply to that specific certificate program. Students who successfully complete the certificate program tend to do well when accepted into the MA in CJ program. All courses earned in our certificates can be used toward the MA in CJ.
