  • Application Requirements:
    • Online application form
    • Transcripts (uploaded on the Academic History page)
    • 3 recommendation letters
    • GRE (General) optional: Villanova’s graduate programs in the liberal arts and sciences use a holistic application review process, seeking to take into account each applicant’s individual qualifications and varied circumstances, and understanding that no single set of standards can fit every applicant equally well.  Therefore, applicants to GRE-optional programs may choose not to take the GRE or to submit GRE scores, but are welcome to submit those scores if they feel they enhance their applications.
