GRE Examination

GRE Requirement for Teacher Education and Education Leadership Programs

Update: As of December 13, 2017, applicants with a valid NYSED teacher or school administrator certification and prior graduate degree are exempt from the GRE requirement for programs that lead to a new certification. This exemption does not apply to the Doctor of Education program.  

Hunter College may exempt up to 15% of its incoming class from the GRE based on a student’s demonstration of potential to positively contribute to the teaching and/or educational leadership professions. Applicants may submit a GRE Exemption Request by completing this form. GRE Exemption Requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis and there is no guarantee of approval.

WHEN AND HOW TO SUBMIT GRE SCORES

  • Applicants should register for the GRE at www.ets.org/gre as soon as possible. The Hunter College ETS code is 2301. By entering this code, the Hunter College Graduate Admissions office will receive the official score report.
  • Applicants may submit an application without a GRE score, and should indicate their exam date in the Standardized Test section of the application. Official scores are usually received 3-4 weeks after the test date. Applicants may email a PDF of the unofficial score report to gradadm@hunter.cuny.edu and request the score report be attached to an application.

IF YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE GRE REQUIREMENT, PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE OF ADMISSIONS AT EDADMISSIONS@HUNTER.CUNY.EDU OR VISIT ROOM W1000 AT HUNTER COLLEGE.
