Register for the Paper-based GRE® revised General Test

Paper-based GRE® revised General Test administrations are offered up to three times a year in areas of the world where computer-based testing is not available. You can register for a paper-based administration online or by mail.

Online Registration

  • You need to create or have a My GRE Account to register online. Note: The name you use when you create your My GRE Account will also be the name used when you register for a GRE® test. Therefore, it must exactly match (excluding accents and spaces) the name on the identification (ID) documents that you will present on the day of your GRE test. If it does not, you may be prohibited from taking the test or your test scores may be canceled after you take the test. For example, a last name of Fernandez de Córdova would be entered as FernandezdeCordova.
  • Payment methods include: credit/debit card (American Express®, Discover®, JCB®, MasterCard® or VISA®), E-Check (drawn against U.S. bank accounts only) and PayPal Information.
    Note that ETS reserves the right to add or delete payment options at its own discretion and without notice.
  • Online registration is not available to examinees testing in Nigeria
  • Online registration is not available for test takers with disabilities or health-related needs. Please see Disability Accommodations.

Admission Ticket

After you register for a paper-based test, you will receive an admission ticket by mail from ETS. You must bring the admission ticket to the test center. Attached to your admission ticket is a correction stub. Use the correction stub to correct personal data, provide address changes, or to add, delete or change score recipients. The correction stub must be received at ETS by the Friday before the test date. Name changes cannot be submitted on the correction stub.

If your admission ticket does not arrive before the test date, or you lose it, you can view and print your admission ticket from your My GRE Account.
