Sending Your Scores
Your test fee entitles you to request that scores be sent to your undergraduate institution and to as many as four graduate institutions or fellowship sponsors. With the ScoreSelectSM option, you can decide which test scores to send to the institutions you designate.
When you register for a GRE® Subject Test, you will be asked to designate which score recipients you want to receive your 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.
When designating score recipients, you can select the ScoreSelect Most Recent option and send scores from the Subject Test you are registering to take, or you can select the ScoreSelect All option and send scores from all the times you have taken a GRE Subject Test in the last five years. You can decide which option to use for each of your four free score reports.
After test day, you can order Additional Score Reports for a fee of US$25 per recipient. At that time, you can choose to send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any test administration. See Ordering Additional Score Reports.
Scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety. Institutions will receive score reports that show only the scores that you selected to send to them. There will be no special indication if you have taken additional GRE® tests.
You can also send your GRE scores to your prospective employers.
- 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, 2013, GRE scores earned July 1, 2008 to the present will be available in your reportable GRE score history.
- Scores from individuals who tested between July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2008 were purged from the GRE database in mid-June 2013.
- Scores from individuals who tested between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009 will be purged from the GRE database in mid-June 2014.
Your Official Score Record
Your official Examinee Score Report, which can be printed from your My GRE Account, 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 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 or any scores you have chosen not to report using the ScoreSelect option. If you took the GRE® General Test prior to August 1, 2011, your original Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores on the 200–800 score scales will be reported along with estimated scores on the 130–170 score scales. 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 Subject Test, have changed your name since you took a previous GRE test and want current and previous scores reported, follow these instructions:
- 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.
