No, there are certain universities that do not necessarily require a GRE score for their MS in Computer Science course. Here is a list of the top schools in USA that have waived off GRE:

University of Arizona 

Saint Louis University

University of Maryland Baltimore County

Northeastern University 


Northeastern University Seattle

The University of illinois at chicago

University of Arizona

University of California


While this is just a general school list, you should also keep in mind that all universities have a certain set of profile requirements, and you need to apply to universities that align with your profile for the same. It’s not necessary that you will be able to apply to all of these mentioned universities because of your profile. Still,  there is also a possibility that you can get into some more exceptional universities. 

I know it can be a bit difficult to find out which universities match your profile, and then there is also a high chance of miscommunication because of a plethora of data over the internet. 

I suggest you check out the FREE School Explore Tool here. It will generate a personalised list of schools that match your profile and preferences. This will make it easier for you to narrow down your best choices then. 

Once you have your school list, I’m sure you would also have questions like how to apply, what are the documents required etc. Let me know, and I will help you with relevant information.
