Recognizing the limited access that American Indians and Alaskan Native students have regarding access to graduate entrance exams and the cost of affording such exam, we researched the average cost of the following tests:

  • GRE:   $205.00
  • GMAT: $250.00
  • MCAT: $320.00
  • LSAT:  $200.00
  • PCAT:  $210.00

Seeing this need as a barrier to Native students’ access to graduate education, American Indian Graduate Center created the AIGC Access Scholarship that will provide a one-time award to cover students’ graduate test fees.
