No GRE Required to Apply to O’Neill’s Graduate Programs

As a graduating senior, we know your college experience has been cut short in a dramatic fashion. No Little 500. No Commencement. You’re missing out on the final weeks of your college career in Bloomington, and our campus and school feels empty without you. That’s why we want to invite you back.

The O’Neill School’s Master of Public Affairs program was just ranked #1 in the nation for the fourth year in a row and our new Master of Science in Healthcare Management program is already netting graduates starting salaries between $70,000 and $110,000. We offer three renowned programs in Arts Administration, Environmental Science, and Environmental Sustainability that will take your professional career to the next level. Given the unique circumstances we’re in, we’re extending our application deadlines for those who matter most – Indiana University’s graduating seniors.  Applying to an O’Neill master’s program is easy and free – all you need to submit is the eApplication form, supplemental documents (personal statement, resume, and two short essays), and the name of three references (no recommendation letters are required). No GRE is required. To receive a code that will waive your application fee, please reach out to

We also know that many of you are now faced with the realities and possibilities afforded by distance learning. We’ve been offering our top-ranked MPA program online for years—same award-winning faculty, same world-renowned curriculum. If learning on your schedule has opened up new avenues for you, we’re giving our incoming MPA students the opportunity to take advantage of O’Neill Online, either temporarily or permanently. IU seniors can apply to O’Neill Online via the instructions that were shared above.

These days, more than ever, we know flexibility is an important criteria for any decision you make, and we hope that these new options give you the options you need to advance your education.

In these trying times, we stand ready to assist in any way we can.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to Bloomington.
