GRE and GMAT Reimbursement

Standardized Testing

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) are used for admission to Graduate Schools, while not necessary for admission they are similar to the SAT & ACT tests, in that schools use them to predict which candidates are a good fit for their studies.

Veterans can be reimbursed for the cost of these tests using their GI Bill eligibility and  DANTES reimburses the GMAT or GRE General fee for eligible military personnel. To be eligible for DANTES reimbursement of the GMAT or GRE General testing fee, you must, at the time of testing, possess a current "Armed Forces of the United States" identification card and meet the following requirements:

  • Have never taken a DANTES funded GMAT paper-based or GMAT CAT or GRE General Examination.
  • Be applying to or enrolled in a graduate school requiring the GMAT or GRE General.
  • Be fulfilling a legitimate service requirement.
  • Apply for reimbursement within 90 days of the scheduled test date.

You are responsible for scheduling the GMAT or GRE General, paying all fees associated with registration, and if eligible, completing the reimbursement form and applying for reimbursement not later than 90 days after the scheduled test date.

Contact your Test Control Officer or Alternate Test Control Officer to get a copy of the appropriate form. Your local TCO or ATCO must sign the form to validate your eligibility. The appropriate mailing addresses are on the forms.
