Sending Your Scores

Your test fee entitles you to request that scores be sent to up to four graduate institutions or fellowship sponsors. With the ScoreSelect® option, you can decide which test scores to send to the institutions you designate, so you can send the scores you feel show your personal best, giving you more confidence on test day. If you wish to send scores to additional institutions or decide to send scores after test day, you may do so by ordering Additional Score Reports for a fee of US$27 per recipient.

  • For the computer-delivered GRE® General Test, you will be asked to designate your free score recipients at the test center.
  • For the paper-delivered GRE General Test, you will be asked to designate your free score recipients during registration.

Computer-delivered GRE General Test

On test day, after completing the test and viewing your unofficial Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores, you will be asked to designate which score recipients you want to receive your General Test scores.

You will have the option to select the Most Recent (Send your scores from your current test administration) option or All (Send your scores from all administrations in the last five years) option for up to four institutions for free. You also can choose not to send any scores at that time.

After test day, you can order Additional Score Reports for a fee of US$27 per recipient. At that time, you can choose to send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any test administration from your reportable history. See Ordering Additional Score Reports.

Paper-delivered GRE General Test

When you register, you will be asked to designate which score recipients you want to receive your General Test scores. If a score recipient is not listed, contact ETS before your test date.

During registration, you will have the option to select the Most Recent option (Send your scores from your current test administration) or All option (Send your scores from all administrations in the last five years) for up to four institutions for free. You also can choose not to send any scores at that time.

After test day, you can order Additional Score Reports for a fee of US$27 per recipient. At that time, you can choose to send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any test administration from your reportable history. See Ordering Additional Score Reports.

Reportable History

  • For tests taken on or after July 1, 2016, scores are reportable for five years following your test date. For example, scores for a test taken on July 3, 2019, are reportable through July 2, 2024.
  • For tests taken prior to July 1, 2016, scores are reportable for five years following the testing year in which you tested (July 1–June 30). For example, scores for a test taken on May 15, 2016, are reportable through June 30, 2021.
  • GRE scores earned prior to July 2014 are no longer reportable. GRE scores earned in July 2014 are reportable until June 30, 2020.

Use this calculator to find the exact date at which your scores are no longer reportable.

NOTE: It takes approximately five business days to process requests to send GRE scores. If you plan to send scores and the date at which your scores are no longer reportable is approaching, allow enough time for processing or your scores may not be sent.

Your Official Score Record

Your official Test-taker Score Report will indicate your designated recipients and your cumulative record reported at that time. See a sample Test-taker Score Report. Your score report is intended only for your information and personal records.

Your official Graduate 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. There will be no special indication if you have taken additional GRE tests. See a sample Graduate Institution Score Report.

If Your Name Has Changed

Name changes can be processed upon submission of the appropriate documentation to ETS. If you are sending scores and your name has changed since you took the test, contact GRE Services for assistance.
