Revisions to GRE cancelled


Educational Testing Service (ETS), the publishers of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), had planned to launch a revised GRE General Test in September 2007. The revision called for the GRE to be delivered over a new worldwide network of 3,200 Internet-based testing centers. However, on April 2, 2007, ETS announced they were cancelling this change. ETS explained the primary reason for the cancellation was that they “could not guarantee complete access to all students needing to take the exam.” As a result, GRE registration will continue as normal and methods for preparing for the GRE General Test will remain unchanged.

For Lawrence University students, the closest testing center for the computer-based GRE General Test continues to be UW Oshkosh (920-424-1433). The paper-based GRE Subject Tests continues to be offered at Lawrence University.
