GRE Exam Information

Prospective applicants from around the world who are interested in pursuing a master's, specialized master's in business, MBA, JD or doctoral degree take the GRE General Test. 

The GRE General Test measures your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills — skills that have been developed over a long period of time and are not related to a specific field of study but are important for all. Here is more information regarding the test content.

GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study. They provide schools with a common measure for comparison. The GRE General Test is accepted at thousands of graduate, business and law schools.

Exam Accommodations

The Educational Testing Service (ETS), which administers the GRE exam, is committed to providing reasonable testing accommodations for candidates with documented disabilities or health-related needs, as recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA). We treat requests for accommodations on a case-by-case basis and have established policies and procedures that ensure that people with disabilities or health-related needs have access to our tests.

Please view the ETS website for more information regarding testing accommodations through their organization. The Office of Disability Services is available for questions regarding these testing sites as well.
