GRE Subject Test

Subject Test in Psychology

  • This exam may also be referred to as the GRE Advanced Test or the GRE Major Field Test.
  • This exam is recommended, not required. You may consider taking this exam especially if psychology was not your major field of study as an undergraduate.
  • Subject tests are paper-based tests and are only offered 3 times a year.
  • The test dates and score mailing dates can be found on the ETS website¬†(Please note that the exam taken in April would likely be received too late to be considered.)
  • Please note: If your Subject GRE scores are not received by the application deadline this will not hold up the review of your application, since the Subject GRE is not required. Once the Subject GRE scores are received, even if it is after the application deadline, they will be uploaded into your application file; however, if your application has already been reviewed by the admissions committee before the Subject test scores are received it is not guaranteed the file will be re-reviewed once the scores arrive.
  • GRE Subject scores are received electronically from ETS. Use Institution Code 3915 when requesting reports from ETS.
  • More information about the Subject test is available from the Educational Testing Service website.
