Each applicant for admission to the Graduate Division of the Jacobs School of Music with an undergraduate academic record containing more than 10 percent of “pass,” “satisfactory,” or “credit” entries in lieu of letter grades must submit:
- a written evaluation or customary letter grade by the instructor in at least 90 percent of all courses, and
- scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). GRE scores must be no more than 5 years old at the time of application.
Both requirements must be met before an application for admission can be considered.
