The Cost of the GRE Test
The GRE General Test has a worldwide price of $205, except in Australia, China, and Nigeria. In Australia, the cost is $230, while China is $220.70 and Nigeria is $220. Individuals with financial constraints can apply for a 50% fee reduction. However, the amount of fee reductions given is limited; they are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Some of the eligibility requirements for a fee reduction include being unemployed, an unenrolled college grad or a senior in college.
Some additional fees apply in certain circumstances. If you need to reschedule your exam or change the testing center, it will cost $50 in each instance. Standby testing requires a fee of $50, and registering late will cost an extra $25 on top of the exam fee. Both the late registration and standby testing only apply to paper-delivered testing.
The acceptable forms of payment vary, depending on whether the exam is computer-based or paper-delivered. For the computer-based test, you can pay with a credit/debit card, voucher, check or money order. These methods of payment are also options for the paper-based version, in addition to PayPal, eCheck, Western Union Quick Pay and UNESCO coupons.
