Graduate Exam Prep

GRADUATE EXAM PREP courses are available for the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) or the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) and prepare students for gaining entrance into the graduate programs at West Chester University or any institution of higher education. Classes meet at the Graduate Business Center in West Chester, PA, an easy commute from Malvern, Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Lancaster or Delaware.

Math and Verbal instruction, as well as test taking techniques, are provided by instructors who remain current with the latest test changes. They are committed to coaching each student to achieve their highest score and remain responsive throughout the course length and beyond. WCU offers a 1-week Accelerated Grad Exam Prep course periodically, along with a more comprehensive 8-week course each Spring and Fall. Regardless of which course is selected, all attendees electronically receive a Math & Verbal Refresher Packet to help prepare for the first day of the course. Attendees may attend another offering of the selected course within one year at no cost if desired increase in score is not achieved. If there is a need to create a course for a specific group or timetable, please contact Eileen Jenkins, or on 610-425-7435.
