Every campus has a minimum score that applicants must achieve, however required scores vary by campus and by program. Generally speaking, UC Berkeley and UC Los Angeles have the highest TOEFL and GRE requirements because they receive the most applications each year. However, within every campus these requirements can vary according to the specific graduate program to which students are applying.

This step is essential in their application process, and enables UC MEXUS to communicate directly with the campuses regarding their solicitation of a UC MEXUS-CONACYT doctoral fellowship.
