Please be aware that due to Federal privacy laws, our counselors can only speak to YOU about your financial aid. You are able to authorize our office to give information about your financial aid to someone other than yourself, such as a parent or spouse. From your financial aid student portal, click on the "authorizations" tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and select the person you want to authorize from the drop down menu. If they are not listed, or if there is not a drop down menu, you will need to download and complete a "privacy release form" and bring it into our office. (Link will be here)p>
The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is a graduate-level admissions test. Whether you are planning to go to graduate or business school, or just exploring your options, taking the GRE can be an important step towards your future.
In order to request a fee reduction, you will need to complete the GRE fee reduction request form and submit it via mail, or in person to the financial aid office. Once submitted, a financial aid counselor will prepare your GRE fee reduction certificate based on information from your current FAFSA. This certificate must be mailed with your GRE test application.
For students living within 30 minutes of campus, your certificate may be picked up 48 hours after submitting your request to our office. For online students or those living further than 30 minutes from campus, you are able to receive your certificate by mail, if specified on your form. Please make sure to include your current address on the form. More information about the GRE, including who should take the exam, can be found here.
