Students should have no trouble registering for the GRE. At present, the most popular way to take the exam is on a computer. However, it is still possible to take a paper-based version of the exam in most test locations. Students can register online, over the phone, or in person at one of the hundreds of testing locations located throughout the United States and Canada. You can take the exam once every month, but no more than five times within a calendar year. The testing dates offered at different locations may vary, so it is a good idea to consult with the testing center before making plans for a certain day.
In addition, different testing centers may have different procedures regarding registration, cancellation, and rescheduling, so it is a good idea to check with the testing center about these issues during registration. In most cases, students who reschedule or cancel their exams less than three days before the date of the exam will forfeit the entire registration fee. Students who cancel or reschedule with more notice will be eligible for some kind of refund. There is usually a fee assessed when a student reschedules a test. You can find your local testing center by visiting the Educational Testing Service website.
