The GRE program is divided into two separately administered programs.

Part I- GRE General. The GRE General is available exclusively as a computer- based test (CBT) through National Testing Centers only. The Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education System (DANTES) Test Centers are no longer authorized to administer the GRE General Examination. Registration and scheduling policies and procedures are contained in the GRE Information and Registration Bulletin (available at the Education Services Division , Building 33009) or on the GRE website or by calling 1-800-GRE-CALL (473-2255). Examinees are strongly encouraged to review this information prior to taking the GRE General CBT.

The GRE General Test measures skills not directly related to any specific field of study. It consists of verbal reasoning sections, quantitative sections and analytical sections. The GRE CBT also has an optional GRE Writing Assessment.

DANTES changed its funding policy for the GRE General. The new policy requires the examinee to schedule and pay for the GRE General up-front. DANTES reimburses the eligible examinee after the administration of the GRE General. To determine the eligibility requirements and the procedures for requesting reimbursement for the GRE General, it is recommended that soldiers be seen by an Education Center counselor prior to testing. Prometrics Learning Technology Centers have an exclusive contract for the administration of these examinations. Prometrics Learning Technology Centers are located in Austin and Waco.

GRE Subject Exams
Part II- GRE Subject Exam. The GRE Subject examinations remain paper-and-pencil tests available through DANTES Test Centers for funded military testing. The GRE Subject DANTES Test Centers for funded military testing. The GRE Subject Tests measure achievement in specific fields of study (knowledge in either an undergraduate major or extensive background in the specific subject) and mastery of the concepts, principles and knowledge basic to success in specific graduate fields.

Only one administration of a GRE Subject Test is funded by DANTES per lifetime for eligible military personnel.
