What is the GRE score required for getting admission to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the department of Computer Science and Engineering?


I completed my bachelor’s degree in computer science, and I’m looking to pursue my master of science degree in it as well. I used to have financial constraints, so it’s been a while since I’ve been back to university. I’m working in the field of computer science now, but I want to further my career in it. I want to know the masters admission requirements for the University of North Carolina and what is the minimum GRE score required?

Awesome! I just want to let you know that if you’re looking to pursue your Masters Degree in Computer Science, you will most likely receive some sort of financial aid. Some universities offer TA positions that can lead you to be eligible for a monthly stipend and a full ride. It is competitive though.

To be prepared from admissions, you need to already have knowledge in calculus (both differential and integral), discrete mathematics, linear algebra, structured programming design, data types and structures, and computer organization.

University of North Carolina’s masters program in computer science and engineering offers a minimum GRE score requirement. They require incoming graduate students to have at least an 80th percentile score on the verbal section. Furthermore, you would need to reach at least the 90th percentile for both the analytical and quantitative parts of the GRE test.

The other general requirements for applying into UNC’s Computer and Engineering graduate program includes a statement of purpose, three letters of recommendation, and a GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale.

Thank you!
