Graduate Record Examination

The GRE General Test is required of all prospective graduate students. Several graduate programs do not require the GRE, but some of these require a different examination such as an Advanced Area Test. Please refer to admission requirement information about your specific program of interest. You can also view a list of these programs in Admissions FAQs under Test Scores. 

Applicants who have taken the GRE should request that Educational Testing Service forward scores directly to the Graduate School (the Stony Brook code is 2548). When required, failure to submit GRE scores with the completed application will prevent the review of student applications by the program. Photocopies are not acceptable. To register for the GRE, please see .
