Graduate Admissions

*Computer Science Graduate Admissions Changes Due to COVID-19*

**GRE Requirement for Fall 2021-2022 Admissions Cycle Only**

Students who wish to apply for admission to our graduate program for the 2021-2022 academic year (applications for this cycle are due December 1, 2020) are not required to take the GRE or submit a GRE score report as part of their application package. However, students may voluntarily submit GRE test scores and they will be reviewed as part of the holistic application consideration. The applications with GRE scores will not be given greater weight than those that do not include scores.

The UCLA Computer Science Department is committed to a fair and equitable process for admission to our M.S. and Ph.D. programs.  Many students are currently facing significant educational changes due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In response, today we are announcing a policy change for our Fall 2021 graduate admissions process.  We will not penalize applicants for any classes that are taken Pass/Fail instead of a letter grade during the COVID-19 outbreak time period, including classes in Computer Science and related fields. We hope that this policy change will reduce the stress and uncertainty that our applicants are feeling in these unprecedented times.
