Graduate Record Examination

The GRE General Test is required of all prospective graduate students. Several programs also require an Advanced Area Test. Please refer to the admission requirements of the specific program of interest. 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). 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 .

Several graduate programs do not require the GRE, but some of these require a different examination. Please refer to information about your program. You can also view a list of these programs in Admissions FAQs under Test Scores. The GRE Examination is waived for students in approved Stony Brook accelerated, five-year bachelor's/master's programs.
