Rescheduling the GRE

The test day is approaching, but you’re not feeling particularly confident to take the test? Or is there an event that demands your presence and so you cannot escape? Are you thinking of doing an exam rescheduling? Well, you can! Here is how.

Let us find out how and when you can reschedule the GRE, however, you need to focus on do you really want to reschedule the GRE test or not.

In this guide, we’ll cover all of the basics of canceling a GRE exam, including the rules for getting a refund and how much it costs. We’ll then give you step-by-step instructions on how to cancel a GRE test appointment in addition to a few tips on when it’s better to cancel or reschedule a test.

If you are planning to reschedule or cancel your Test registration you need to do it four days before your actual test date (the number of days may vary for some countries) or else your test fee will be forfeited. In the rescheduling process, the type of test you are taking is important. The process by which you will reschedule or cancel your registration and the fees or refunds associated with it vary depending on the test you are taking.

You can reschedule your test registration one of two ways:

• Online through your ETS account
• Contact GRE® Services by phone, fax or mail

Do’s and don’ts related to the rescheduling process:

1. The Rescheduling Process

You can reschedule your GRE registration online by logging in to your ETS account that you created during registration. You can also reschedule over the phone by contacting the appropriate Regional Registration Center (RRC). For Indian test-takers, the RRC number is 91-124-4147700.

To reschedule your exam you can dial up the number and provide your “appointment confirmation number” and the “full name” you used to make the appointment. Please keep in mind the following.

  • You must reschedule your GRE no later than FOUR days before your test date. For example, the deadline to reschedule a Friday appointment is Monday.
  • You will be charged a fee of $50 for rescheduling your test.
  •  The test date cannot be rescheduled beyond one year of the original appointment date.
  •  If you do not reschedule your test registration as above, your entire test fee will be forfeited.
