Register for the FREE GRE® Search Service
Don't miss this opportunity to hear from graduate schools that are searching
for students like you. The GRE Search Service matches prospective graduate
students with participating graduate schools and fellowship sponsors. If you
match the recruitment profile of a participating institution/organization, you
may be sent information about graduate programs, admission requirements,
financial aid opportunities, fellowships, and other graduate education
You will be given the option to be included in the Search Service when you
register for a GRE test. Anyone considering graduate study, whether or not they
are registered for a GRE test, may also register for the GRE Search Service. To
register for the GRE Search Service only, use the online GRE
When you register for a GRE test, or if you participate in the Search
Service, you will be asked to provide background information about yourself.
This information is collected for analysis samples, score interpretation data,
group statistics, and research studies. If you register to participate in the
Search Service, your background information, contact information, and the broad
score bands in which your test scores fall will be added to the GRE Search
Service database so that participating graduate schools and fellowship sponsors
can locate you.
Beginning in December 2007, participating graduate schools and fellowship
sponsors can search the database on broad GRE score bands in combination with
undergraduate grade point average (UGPA). The score bands for the Verbal
measure, Quantitative measure, and the Subject Tests are 90 points or greater
(e.g., 600 to 690) and the score bands for the Analytical Writing measure are a
half point or greater (e.g., 4.5 to 5.0). Information on broad score
bands or individual GRE test scores will not be part of the output provided to
Search Service users.
Information provided to participating schools about you may include any of
personal information: address, gender, ethnic background, citizenship
status, telephone number, and e-mail address
educational background: current educational status, undergraduate
institution name, UGPA, undergraduate major, and date of graduation
educational objective: field in which you plan to do your graduate work,
preference of full-time or part-time graduate study, degree objective,
preferred geographic region for graduate study, and intended date of
enrollment in graduate school.
