Rice goes GRE-optional, will grant doctoral application fee waivers to graduates of Texas schools

Rice is generally waiving the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) standardized test requirement for its 2022 graduate applications. Rice will also waive application fees for doctoral applicants who are graduates of institutions in Texas and bordering states.

Applications are now open for 2023 admission.
