Sending Your Scores

Your test fee entitles you to request that scores be sent to up to four graduate institutions or fellowship sponsors.

  • For the computer-delivered GRE® revised General Test, you will be asked to designate your free score recipients at the test center.
  • For the paper-delivered GRE revised General Test, you will be asked to designate your free score recipients during registration or on your admission ticket correction stub.

And with the ScoreSelect® option, you can decide which test scores to send to the institutions you designate, so you can send the scores you feel show your personal best, giving you more confidence on test day. If you wish to send scores to additional institutions or decide to send scores after test day, you may do so by ordering Additional Score Reports for a fee.

You can also send your GRE® scores to your prospective employers.

Computer-delivered GRE revised General Test

On test day, after completing the test and viewing your unofficial Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores, you will be asked to designate which score recipients you want to receive your General Test scores. If an institution is not listed, ask the test center administrator for the appropriate form to indicate unlisted institutions. Complete the form and turn it in before you leave the test center. The form will not be accepted after you leave the test center.

You will have the option to select the ScoreSelect Most Recent option or ScoreSelect All option for up to four institutions for free. You also can choose not to send any scores at that time.

After test day, you can order Additional Score Reports for a fee of US$27 per recipient. At that time, you can choose to send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any test administration from your reportable history. See Ordering Additional Score Reports.

Paper-delivered GRE revised General Test

When you register, you will be asked to designate which score recipients you want to receive your General Test scores. If a score recipient is not listed, contact ETS before your test date. You can also designate score recipients on your admission ticket correction stub.

In either case, you will have the option to select the ScoreSelect Most Recent option or ScoreSelect All option for up to four institutions for free. You also can choose not to send any scores at that time.

After test day, you can order Additional Score Reports for a fee of US$27 per recipient. At that time, you can choose to send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any test administration from your reportable history. See Ordering Additional Score Reports.

Reportable History

  • GRE test scores are part of your reportable history for five years after the testing year in which you tested (July 1–June 30). As of July 1, 2014, GRE scores earned July 1, 2009, to the present will be available in your reportable GRE score history.
  • Scores from individuals who tested between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009, were purged from the GRE database in mid-June 2014.
  • Scores from individuals who tested between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, will be purged from the GRE database in mid-June 2015.

Your Official Score Record

Your official Examinee Score Report will indicate your designated recipients and your cumulative record reported at that time. See a sample Examinee Score Report. Your score report is intended only for your information and personal records.

Your official Graduate Institution Score Report, received by your designated recipients, will include your name, address, email address, phone number, intended graduate major, GRE test scores and associated percentile ranks. It will not include any information concerning the other score recipients you have chosen. Additionally, institution score reports include only the scores that you selected to send to them using the ScoreSelect option. There will be no special indication if you have taken additional GRE tests. See a sample Graduate Institution Score Report.

If an institution that you have designated to receive your scores requests to see your photograph taken at the test center, ETS will send that photo or other information in ETS's files to that institution as necessary to detect or prevent unlawful activity and to protect the integrity of the GRE test.

If Your Name Has Changed

If you are registering to take a GRE test, have changed your name since you took a previous GRE test and want current and previous scores reported, follow these instructions:

Computer-delivered Test

  • After you have registered to take the test, contact GRE services for assistance. Be prepared to provide your current name, appointment number, date of birth and previous name and test date.

Paper-delivered Test

  • If you are registering for the test by mail, enclose an Additional Score Report (ASR) Request form with your registration form. When completing the form, include your previous name and testing information in the "Previous Test Administration Details" section.
  • If you register online, complete the ASR form and send to ETS with your correction stub after you receive your admission ticket.
