GRE® Search Service

Put this powerful student recruitment tool to work for you

The GRE® Search Service, available exclusively to GRE score users, gives you the power to cost-effectively reach prospective applicants who have demonstrated graduate-level readiness through their GRE test performance. You can conveniently incorporate these qualified prospects into your ongoing recruitment campaigns because they have personally opted in to hear from programs like yours.

Helpful features

  • The user-friendly interface lets you tap into the database of 500,000+ individuals from around the world who have already taken a decisive step toward pursuing an advanced degree. And with updates to our database twice per week, fresh names are always available.
  • Thousands of search combinations are possible with more than 30 search criteria.You can geotarget prospects within a specified radius of any location you choose, and select names based on a GRE test date or planned date of enrollment that suits your timing needs. It all adds up to a recruitment campaign you can execute with the precision you need to meet your specific goals.
  • Delegate full-access ordering privileges to up to five other members of your department for backup or to accommodate different team member roles. You can even delegate privileges to an agency that manages your marketing campaigns so they can access Search Service names on your behalf to maximize results.
  • With new names delivered to you as often as weekly through the recurring order feature, this database can quickly become an important component of your ongoing and seasonal recruitment efforts.
  • With no annual or other participation fees, you pay only for the names you need, and that includes reuse privileges enabling you to send reminder emails to the same names at no additional cost. In short, the GRE Search Service helps to make your outreach plan incredibly cost efficient!
