Changes Related to COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we have extended our application deadline to May 31st for summer 2020 enrollment. Additionally, we are providing GRE waivers to applicants who have graduated in the past three years and can document scores in the 85th percentile or higher on the composite and math portions of either the ACT or SAT.
REDA’s summer course is taught online. We anticipate that fall 2020 courses will be fully online and that spring 2021 courses will at a minimum have an online option. The situation is changing rapidly, and we will communicate new information with applicants and admitted students.
