Entrance Exams

The GRE is managed individually on the department level, see your department's information below. It is required for most of our programs alongside other supplementary application material, which in combination with grades, class rank, recommendation letters and the quality of the applicant’s undergraduate program assist in making decisions regarding admission and financial assistance. 

*Some programs require entrance exams beyond the GRE.

Official GRE test scores must be sent directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS) using the institution code of 2927 for the University of Pittsburgh. Please refer to the following web site for further information on the GRE and registration forms: http://www.ets.org/gre

UPDATE APRIL 2020: Due to ongoing public health concerns, ETS is temporarily offering a GRE General Test at home option in select areas. The test is taken on your home computer and is monitored by a human proctor virtually. For more information, including which countries currently offer the at home option, please visit this page: ets.org/s/cv/gre/at-home/
