The Graduate Record Examination (GRE), administrated by the Education Testing Services (ETS), is a standardized test required for acceptance in many graduate schools that determines the readiness for graduate work.

There are two types of GRE tests, general and subject tests. The general test is required for admissions to many of the graduate programs, and is specifically required for the Liberty University Online graduate programs. The subject test is offered in several subject areas, and is optional for Liberty University Online.
