The GRE is widely used in the United States and internationally for admission into graduate school. GRE test scores help admissions counselors and program staff assess students’ likelihood for success in many different graduate programs around the world. Typically, the graduate programs that require the GRE require the GRE General Test; however, some programs require an additional GRE subject test. So, make sure to check with the graduate program to which you are applying to ensure you are taking every test you need.

What are the GRE test dates for 2019?

The GRE is offered as either a computer-delivered test or a paper and pencil test. Both versions of the exam are offered at Prometric testing centers across the U.S, Canada, and Puerto Rico, as well as at additional testing centers around the world where a Prometric facility is unavailable. There are several GRE test dates for 2018-2019. Registering by the designated deadline is your best option; however, there is also a late registration option.

Choosing a test date for the computer-based GRE depends on the testing center at which you choose to take the test. The computer-based GRE is more flexible in that it is offered year-round; however, test dates are dependent on the testing center you choose. So, you will need to visit the ETS GRE website to use their computer-delivered GRE registration tool to find the best testing center and test date for you.

*Late registration can only be completed online and a fee of U.S. $25 will be assessed.

**Monday test dates will be: October 8, 2018; November 12, 2018; February 4, 2019.

How do I choose the right GRE test date?

There are several factors to consider when registering to take the GRE. As aforementioned, the computer-based and paper-based tests have different testing dates. If you plan to take the computer-based GRE, you will need to visit the ETS GRE website to determine which dates are offered at your chosen testing facility. If you plan to take the paper-based GRE, consult the list above for test dates.

For either exam version, you will first need to check with your graduate program to ensure you receive your test scores early enough to meet your program’s application deadline. The computer-based GRE allows for scores to be sent to your graduate school within approximately 10-15 days of your test date. The paper-based GRE allows for scores to reach your designated recipients based on the approximate dates listed above. You will want to make sure you give yourself enough time to register, take the exam, and plan for any possible retakes prior to your graduate school application deadline.

If you need to retake either the paper-based or computer-based GRE for any reason, you can only retake the GRE General Test once within a 21-day period, up to five times within any 12-month (365 day) period. The 12-month period is continuously rolling. The computer-based and paper-based GRE can be taken whenever it is offered as long as you follow the previously mentioned criteria.
