While the Molloy M.S. SLP program is no longer requiring the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) as a requirement for admission, New York State (NYS) does require the GRE for certification as a Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD). While you may be admitted to the Molloy M.S. SLP program without GRE scores, under current NYS requirements you will need to complete the GRE requirement prior to our submission of your TSSLD recommendation to NYS. Other U.S. states and municipalities may have similar requirements.
