Graduate Record Examination (GRE)

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is the preferred required entrance exam for many graduate programs. The GRE General test and the GRE Subject test are two separate exams.

  • GRE General Test

    Prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world who are interested in pursuing a master's, MBA, specialized master's in business or doctoral degree take the GRE General Test. Applicants come from varying educational and cultural backgrounds and the GRE General Test provides schools with a common measure for comparing candidates' qualifications.

    GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records, recommendation letters, and other qualifications for graduate-level study.

    For more information about the GRE General, visit the GRE website.

  • GRE Subject Tests

    The GRE Subject Tests are achievement tests that measure your knowledge of a particular field of study.

    Show what you know about a specific subject and graduate schools will take notice. The Subject Tests can help you stand out from other applicants by emphasizing your knowledge and skill level in a specific area.

    For more information about the GRE Subject, visit the GRE website.
