There is no minimum required GRE score. Although the results of this test represent only one of many factors reviewed in the admission decision, GRE General Test scores often are considered in awarding graduate fellowships.
GRE Subject Test
Several graduate programs (e.g., Chemistry) also require, or strongly recommend, that an applicant report the score of a GRE Subject Test in the respective discipline.
Validity Dates and Timing
GRE test results are not valid for more than five years. Applicants should register for either the October or December test dates to ensure the timely receipt of their score results for admission consideration. At the time of test registration, students must notify the Educational Testing Service to report scores directly to UCI. Scores reported by a student cannot be accepted.
Computerized GRE Tests
A computerized version of the GRE test is now offered which enables examiners to have official test results submitted within approximately two weeks.
