Resources for Standardized Tests

Some graduate programs offered at Texas State require applicants to submit official standardized test scores such as the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). International students are required to submit English proficiency exam scores taking either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam. 

Locate your graduate program to see if you will be required to submit test scores. We have compiled a list of GRE and GMAT resources available for current Texas State students as well as general resources for those who are not yet students. When you are ready to take the exam, please review the document information to find the Texas State school code and other important details. We also offer a competitive test fee scholarship that will help you cover the cost of the test. We hope you find this information useful as you begin your preparations for graduate study!
