GRE—Advance your degree!

  • Seeking a graduate degree? The GRE® General Test measures critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills that are acquired through academic experience and are not related to any specific field of study. The GRE is required for a variety of master’s degree and doctoral degree programs. Master’s in Education (ME), Social Work (MSW), Nurse Practitioner (NP), Business, and Public Administration programs often require or accept the GRE® General Test.

Undergraduate Programs:

ACT - Improve your score!

  • The ACT is a pre-college admissions test that is an important factor in determining admissions status and scholarship eligibility at many schools. It tests quantitative, verbal, and science reasoning skills. Maximize your confidence and your score with our ACT Prep Classes!
