How to Register for a GRE

The GRE® Subject Tests are offered at paper-delivered test centers worldwide up to three times a year in September, October and April. You can register for a Subject Test online or by mail.

Important: The name you use when you register for a GRE test must exactly match (excluding accents) the name on the identification (ID) documents that you will present on the day of your GRE test. If it does not, you may be prohibited from taking the test or your test scores may be canceled after you take the test. For example, a last name of Fernandez de Córdova would be entered as Fernandez de Cordova.
