Graduate Admissions Index

Students are considered for admission to graduate programs on the basis of an admission index, as indicated below. The academic schools may have additional criteria for certain degree programs and may consider admitting students whose indices are below the minimum but within the range specified.

The admission index results from a combination of the following:

Grade point average (GPA) over at least the last 60 hours.

Verbal and Quantitative scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or equivalent scores on the Miller Analogies Test (MAT).

Admission index formula for GRE tests taken prior to August 1, 2011, or MAT tests
(Only for Current UHV students or former UHV students who had sent their official GRE/GMAT/MAT scores prior to 5 year expiration):

Grade point average (GPA) x 200 + (GRE Verbal and Quantitative combined scores, or equivalent scores on the MAT test)

Example: 2.5 GPA x 200 + (400 Verbal + 400 Quantitative) = 1,300 index

Admission index formula for GRE tests taken on or after August 1, 2011 and are within 5 years:

Grade point average (GPA) x 200 + (15 x (GRE Verbal and Quantitative combined score – 260)

Example: 2.5 GPA x 200 + (15 x (145 Verbal + 145 Quantitative – 260) = 950 index
