Temporary COVID-19 Emergency Admission Exam Waiver:

Due to current admission exam testing difficulties amid the COVID-19 pandemic, FEF is waiving the GRE and GMAT requirement for applicants applying for the McKnight Doctoral Fellowship for academic year 2023-2024.

This test is required by most colleges and universities in the State of Florida.  Therefore, you must submit a GRE test score to the FEF in order to be considered for the Fellowship award. If you do not have a relatively current test score (within three to five years), you should register to take the GRE as soon as possible and request that your official written/printed score report be sent to the FEF from ETS by the January 15 deadline. Our code is 0054. Please take this code number with you when you sit for the Exam. If you have already taken the GRE, then simply write the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and request that your official written/printed score report be forwarded to the FEF office.  

The computer-based GRE General Test is scheduled year-round. You are advised to register early to get your preferred test date and avoid the crowded testing period of November to January. For information regarding registration and appointment scheduling, please contact the Sylvan Candidate Services Call Center at 1-800-473-2255. Also, you may visit the GRE website at

You are urged to take the Exam as soon as possible. Normally it takes four to six weeks for official written/printed score reports to be received. Within the time frame of the FEF application processing schedule, your file will be forwarded to the respective universities only when all materials required have been received by the deadline date. Applications not completed by the submission deadline, will not be considered. 


Students applying to graduate schools of business must submit official written/printed scores from the GMAT. The FEF’s code is 0054. You should take the code number with you to the administration of the Test. You are advised to register early to get your preferred test date. Reservations for computer-based testing may be obtained by calling 1-800-462-8669. Also, you may visit the GMAT website at
