Prep for Graduate School Standardized Tests

The Institute for Standardized Testing (IST) provides Coppin students and alumni with the resources and guidance they need to successfully negotiate the graduate school admissions process. Coordinating with Coppin State’s Career Services Center, IST conducts regular information workshops for students considering or applying to graduate or professional school programs.

We also sponsor free test prep workshops for any current student or alumni interested in taking the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), or Law School Admission Test (LSAT). You do not need to be part of the Honors Program to participate in any test prep of our graduate test workshops or activities. Workshops may be part of semester-long series, and run throughout fall and spring semester.

Interested in learning more about how IST can help make your dreams of grad school a reality? Stop by HHSB 346, call us at (410) 951-3387, or email pgass@coppin.edu.
