August 15, 2015 Last day to take GRE for 2016 cycle.
Graduate Record Exam*
All applicants are required to complete the Graduate Record Exam, GRE, prior to the application cycle. The test score must be received electronically by NC State University on or before September 15, 2015 at 11:59pm. Therefore, it is recommended that you take the test no later than August 15 in order for the complete scores to reach us by the September 15th deadline. Scores are sent from ETS to NC State electronically. Paper copies of GRE® scores submitted by applicants are not accepted. Scores that arrive electronically after the September 15th deadline will not be accepted.
The GRE® score is the total from the verbal, quantitative, and written analytical portions of the general test. The general portion of the test includes questions designed to measure skills and knowledge gained over a long period of time. If an applicant takes the test more than once, the highest total score is used from a single testing date, not the highest of each section.
Competitive applicants submit scores that meet or exceed the 50th percentile.
GRE® Score reporting is cumulative. Current GRE Board Policy states that your scores are reportable for 5 years (until September 15 following the fifth anniversary of your test date). Therefore, the GRE® test must have been taken within 5 years of September 15 in the year of application. All scores earned during this time will be reported to each institution you designate. For information about registering for the GRE®, contact the Educational Testing Service at 1-800-GRE-CALL or visit their web site at http://www.gre.org/.
The ETS code for NC State University is 5496 (no department code is used).
*MCAT and DAT scores will not be accepted in lieu of GRE Scores.
Applicants to the DVM Program must have reportable scores on file by the September 15th deadline.
