Be mindful: New York State regulation (effective Fall of 2016) requires that all graduate schools of education use a standardized test as part of the admission process. If you are planning to matriculate into a Graduate Education Program, you will have to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) in order to meet this new regulation.
