Entrance Test Preparation

Both standardized and specialized entrance testing are common requirements for graduate and professional school acceptance. It is important to find out which test will be required by the programs to which you are applying.

Online Resources

  • Kaplan Test Prep has resources, including free online practice tests, for many of the different entrance exams.
  • The Princeton Review can help you prepare for most of the different entrance tests.

International students
Those applying to graduate/professional school may be asked to complete the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). This test is administered through the Counseling & Testing Center, and additional resources can be found through Kaplan Test Prep.
