Graduate Record Examination (GRE)

About the GRE

Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores may be required by your program of interest. The University of Minnesota Duluth Graduate School institutional code is 6873.

GRE General Test

The GRE General Test is administered through the Educational Testing Service (ETS). It is recommended that applicants complete the GRE test in the senior year of undergraduate work or several months before submitting an application for admission. Please note that ETS will not report GRE scores that are more than five years old to institutions. Some graduate programs or departments may accept reports provided by applicants that are more than five years old, but you should check with your program of interest regarding its policy. Your academic program or department may have its own GRE code which can likely be found on its website. However, if you are not sure, the 6873 code will suffice.

More information can be found on the GRE General Test website, or by calling 1-609-771-7670. The computer-adaptive GRE General Test is available year-round. Scores from the computer test are reported 10-15 days after the test is taken.

GRE Subject Test

Some graduate programs require the GRE Subject Test. Each Subject Test is intended for students who have majored in or have extensive background in that specific area. The Subject Test areas are listed below, and more information can be found on the GRE Subject Test website. To check if your program of interest requires the Subject Test, visit the program website.
