GRE Scores

Official GRE General Test score reports not more than five years old must be submitted to GIAC. Our program does not require additional subject exams. We do not have minimum score requirements, but most students accepted into the MFA have verbal scores in the 85 percentile or higher.

As long as you have taken the GRE by the December 15 deadline (and in some cases, even a little later) and asked ETS to report your scores to UT Austin, they should arrive in time for review of your portfolio.  Please note on your MCW cover sheet the date you took/are taking the exam, so we know scores are on the way.

  • The UT Institution code is 6882; there is no need to enter a dept code.
