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.

When you register for a GRE® Subject Test, you will be asked to designate which score recipients you want to receive your scores. If a score recipient is not listed, contact ETS before your test date. You can also designate score recipients on your admission ticket correction stub.

When designating score recipients, you can select the Most Recent option and send scores from the Subject Test you are registering to take, or you can select the All option and send scores from all the times you have taken a GRE Subject Test in the last five years. You can decide which option to use for each of your four free score reports.

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. See Ordering Additional Score Reports.

Scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety. Institutions will receive score reports that show only the scores that you selected to send to them. There will be no special indication if you have taken additional GRE® tests.

Reportable History

  • For individuals testing on or after July 1, 2016, GRE test scores are valid for five years after your test administration date. For example, scores for a test taken on September 17, 2016, are reportable through September 16, 2021.
  • For individuals who tested between August 1, 2011, and June 30, 2016, GRE test scores are valid for five years after the testing year in which you tested (as indicated in the GRE® Information and Registration Bulletin from that testing year). For example, scores for a test taken on April 16, 2016, are reportable through June 30, 2021.
  • GRE scores earned in August 2011 are reportable until June 30, 2017.

Your Official Score Record

Your official Test-taker Score Report, which can be printed from your ETS Account, 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 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.

If an institution that you have designated to receive your scores requests to see your photograph taken at the test center, ETS will send that photo or other information in ETS's files to that institution as necessary to detect or prevent unlawful activity and to protect the integrity of the GRE test.

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.
