Graduate Communication Assessment

The graduate communication assessment must be taken prior to your first COM 510 Communication and Success Strategies class session. There is no fee associated with this assessment. 

The graduate communication assessment is a tool designed to measure written communication skills. Students will select from two topic essays, appropriate for graduate students, which will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Grammar and mechanics
  • Style
  • Organization and development

The graduate communication assessment may be taken at the Troy Campus Testing Center, the Novi Campus Library, or an approved external testing site. An appointment is required. 

Appointments made be scheduled at the Troy Campus Testing Center using this link: https://www-secure.walshcollege.edu/Test_Scheduling/.  For the Novi Campus, please contact the Administrative Office at 248-349-5454 to schedule an appointment to take the assessment at the Novi Library.

Please refer to your admission packet for more information regarding the graduate communication assessment. 

No GMAT Required

We evaluate your application in a careful review of what you have accomplished since graduating from college, together with your academic record in your other degree programs. Those are much better indicators of your success as an MBA student than a formal test score.
