For admission into both undergraduate as well as graduate programs, U.S. universities usually require an evaluative exam that helps them to assess the quality and fit of the applicant to their institution.  This means that U.S. universities usually require an applicant to take the appropriate standardized test as one of their main entry requirements.  Each institution may have their own requirements, so students interested in applying to any particular institution in the U.S. should check each university’s website for admission requirement details.  For more information on each test, click on the appropriate test link in the table below.
