GRE Fee Reduction Program

In the summer of 2017, the Department of Education released new guidelines prohibiting schools from sharing FAFSA information with third parties, even if the schools have the student’s consent.

As a result, Educational Testing Services (ETS) has developed a new process that no longer requires students to obtain a copy of their Institutional Student Information Report (ISIR) and a GRE Fee Reduction Certificate from a financial aid administrator.  Instead, students will be required to send a copy of their Student Aid Report (SAR) and a completed GRE Fee Reduction Request Form to ETS. Students who meet the need-based guidelines will receive a GRE Fee Reduction voucher to take the General Test and/or a Subject Test for 50 percent of the full test fee.

The new GRE Fee Reduction process will become effective with the 2018-19 testing year beginning on July 1, 2018. For further information you can log on to the GRE website.

Please note that the new procedure will not go into effect, and the instructions will not be posted to the ETS website, until July 1, 2018.
