    Temporary COVID-19 Emergency Admission GRE Exam Waiver

    We, in the Department of Psychology at FIU, do not believe barriers outside one’s control should be an impediment to personal and professional development. Therefore, we will waive the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) requirement in graduate admissions in the upcoming admissions cycle for our doctoral and master's program. We will continue to evaluate applicants using a holistic approach that examines a variety of indicators of academic potential. This temporary emergency waiver applies only to those applying to begin graduate training in the Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Fall 2021 semesters. This waiver applies to doctoral and master's applicants. If you have questions regarding the GRE requirement for this program, please email
