How Much Does the GRE Cost?

The GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) is comprised of two parts – the General Test and Subject Test. The General Test concentrates on analogy, antonym, reading comprehension, sentence completion, problem solving, and quantitative comparison. Admissions and fellowship panels consider GRE scores when analyzing the qualifications of a potential student for graduate study.


The GRE is offered throughout the year at computer-based test centers in the United States, Canada and numerous other countries.

The cost to take the GRE General Test differs according to your location, but average costs are between $160 and $205 [1]. Test takers in the United States, U.S. territories and Puerto Rico pay $160. The cost to take the GRE General Test in China (including Hong Kong), Korea and Taiwan is $205. Other locations charge $190 for the GRE.

  • Late registration fee (paper-based test online registration only) – $25
  • Standby testing (paper-based test only) – $50
  • Rescheduling fee – $50
  • Changing your test center – $50
