Wondering how to send GRE scores to universities? The first thing one needs to know is that the test fee is inclusive of the GRE scorecard for up to four colleges. If a candidate has opted for a computer-delivered test, he/she will be asked to select the score receivers at the test-center. In case a paper-delivered test type has been opted for, the candidate will need to select the score receiver at the time of registration.

The score reports indicate both your official report that comes after giving the GRE and the reports which you will be sending to various universities. You also get a ScoreSelect option which helps you choose scores that you can send to chosen institutions. You can send your best GRE scores with this handy system. If you wish to send your scores to more universities or want to send your scores after the day of the test, you will need to pay US$27 (per recipient) and order additional reports. However, colleges don’t view the scores unless the complete application for admission has been sent. 

How to send GRE scores to universities?

In case you were thinking about how to send GRE scores to universities through ETS, you should know that the scores will be available for your perusal within the ETS account itself. They will be dispatched to all designated universities within 10-15 days from your date of testing. Here is the procedure to be followed:

  •     Login to your official ETS account.
  •     Go to MY GRE Home page and choose Send Additional Score Reports. This comes under the Scores tab.
  •     You will find the option named On Screen: Test Registration.
  •     Thereafter, you can use the option called Send Additional Score Reports.

GRE and ETS scores will provide an option to choose Most Recent scores or All scores in the last 5 years. This can be done for up to four universities absolutely free of cost.

Sending GRE scores on the day of the test:

You will get the unofficial GRE quantitative reasoning and verbal section scores on your test day. Analytical writing is assessed by examiners, and they are thus published with the final GRE results, 10 to 15 days after the test date. You can send your GRE results to four institutions without any payable fees. You can choose these institutions after completing the test. One doesn’t need to know school codes to send scores as the codes will be there in the computer system.

 Sending GRE scores after the test:

10-15 days are usually needed for getting the official scores. You can send the same after the day of the test through this method:

  •     Login to the official ETS account and order added score reports that will be sent to any particular institution.
  •     You may apply via mail, online or fax.
  •     Choose your best score over the last 5 years and dispatch it to your chosen institutions.

You may also send your scores prior to submitting the college application. In such a scenario, you will not have to state the fact that you have sent the scores already. You will be selecting to dispatch your scores beforehand so weigh this decision with a lot of care and caution. If the recipient does not have a listing, reach out to ETS prior to appearing for the GRE. The pre-chosen four institutions will be automatically given the official GRE score reports via ETS.

If you apply for Additional Score Reports to be sent to more institutions, expect the same to reach within 5 days at least. If you are applying through fax or mail, it may require 10 business days. If you have applied to reinstate scores, it will require two weeks as per estimates. You should have sufficient time in hand for sending the scores prior to the deadline for admissions. Candidates receive GRE scores around 10-15 days post the date of testing. The scores will be electronically sent to you and show up in the ETS account. Most institutions choose to get these scores electronically via the ETS Data Manager platform or the server-to-server facility which is automated.
