The GRE® program offers authorized score users a choice of FREE score reporting in one of three convenient ways.
- Scores Online through the ETS® Data Manager — the fastest way to receive GRE scores with easy, on-demand, secure access to score information and test-taker data. GRE scores, test-taker photos and GRE Analytical Writing responses are made available in the ETS Data Manager approximately twice a week via the internet.
Note: Institutions currently using Scorelink® Internet Delivery of Scores can continue to access scores using Scorelink Internet Delivery with encryption software or use the ETS Data Manager without encryption software.
- Scores via Automated Server-to-Server Feeds — provides the ability to automatically download test-taker scores from the ETS server to a client server. Using server-to-server feeds requires a one-time setup by the institution's IT or technology staff. Data files containing GRE scores are made available approximately twice a week via the internet.
- Paper Reports — featuring the ETS Security Guard, a special heat-sensitive ink that, when activated, verifies the report’s authenticity. Paper reports are mailed approximately twice a week throughout the entire testing year. Reports can be sorted either alphabetically by the test taker's name within the institution or within the major field or department designated by the test taker. See a sample Official Graduate Institution score report.
For all score delivery methods, score reports include the test taker's GRE scores, mailing address, email address, phone number, date of birth, gender and intended graduate major.
Institutions can receive score reports in both Scorelink and paper formats for a fee of US$300 annually.

Score Reporting Record Layout
Scores reported via the Scorelink Internet Delivery Service or the Automated Server-to-Server Feeds are made available to score recipients using a standard record layout.
Institutions implementing an electronic score reporting delivery method should review the optional score reporting record layout and sample data file to ensure systems are properly configured to receive the data. Note: Before using the sample data file for testing, the institution code, institution name and institution type fields should be modified to include your specific institutional information.
