Important testing update from the GRE® and TOEFL® Programs

January 31, 2020

ETS and the Chinese National Education Examinations Authority (NEEA) have canceled all GRE® and TOEFL® test administrations in Mainland China through the end of February.

This is due to concern for the health and safety of our test takers and test center staff in response to the escalation on January 26, 2020, to a Level One Public Health Emergency Response by the Provincial Governments in China.

ETS has also suspended test administrations in Hong Kong through February 16, 2020. At this time, test administrations in all other locations will take place as scheduled.

Because of this situation, many test takers will be delayed in testing and sending scores. We ask that all colleges and universities understand that this delay is through no fault of the test taker. We are closely following national and local developments and will alert you if there are any significant changes.

Our thoughts are with all those who are impacted by this virus.
