GREs or other standardized achievement tests may be required at the discretion of the dean or the director of the master's program.

If after being admitted, you decide to defer the start of the Azrieli program, you must notify such intent via e-mail to油azrieli@yu.edu.

Azrieli programs do not lead to New York State certification at this time.
