I'm an international student. Do I have to take the TOEFL/IELTS and the GRE?

Applicants must submit official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores when their native language is not English or when their baccalaureate is not from an institution where English is the sole language of instruction.

If you have any questions regarding this requirement, please contact the Office of Admissions at admissions@hds.harvard.edu.

The GRE is required for all applicants to our degree programs. However, GRE waivers are granted to MDiv, MTS, and ThM applicants who already hold advanced degrees. Please contact the Office of Admissions at admissions@hds.harvard.edu if you have an advanced degree and would like to learn more about the process of waiving the GRE requirement.
