Start Your Registration with ETS

Before You Start

  1. Verify that your computer and testing room meet the Equipment and Environment Requirements. If they do not, you will not be able to test.
  2. Have your identification (ID) documents ready. Your primary ID should be a passport. If you do not have a passport, go to ID Requirements to see what other forms of ID are accepted in the country where you are testing. ETS is temporarily accepting government-issued IDs with expiration dates from February 1, 2020, forward. All other ID policies still apply.
  3. If you do not have an ETS account for the GRE® General Test, create an account. Make sure that the name in your account matches the name on your primary ID.

Begin Your Registration

Follow these steps to start your registration in your ETS account:

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. On your My GRE Home page, select Register/Find Test Centers.
  3. On the Find Test Centers and Dates page, select the option for the test at home. You will select your test date and time later with ProctorU®. Note: The at home option is dependent upon the country of your account address. If you are eligible to take the test at home, based on the country, you will see the “Test at home” option as you begin your registration.
  4. Follow the directions to continue your registration and pay for your test.
  5. When you finish, you will receive an email from ETS confirming your payment.
  6. You will also receive an email from ProctorU with a link and temporary password to access your ProctorU account and select a test date and time. You can use this immediately to reserve your test date and time. If you do not, keep it safe for future use.
