Admission requirements

When you apply to study your EdD online with the University of Miami, you are required to submit graduate exam results, such as your GRE or GMAT score.

If you do not have a score to submit, you can register to sit the GRE test. We advise applicants to register early, as tests need to be booked in advance and places are limited.
