Register for the Paper-delivered GRE® General Test

Paper-delivered GRE® General Test administrations are offered up to three times a year in areas of the world where computer-delivered testing is not available. You can register for a paper-delivered administration online or by mail.

Important: The name you use when you create your ETS Account will also be the name used when you register for a GRE® test. Therefore, it must exactly match (excluding accents) the name on the identification (ID) documents  that you will present on the day of your GRE test. If it does not, you may be prohibited from taking the test or your test scores may be canceled after you take the test. For example, a last name of Fernandez de Córdova would be entered as Fernandez de Cordova.
