     The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and the GRE Search Service are administered by Educational Testing Service under policies determined by the GRE Board, an independent board affiliated with the Association of Graduate Schools (AGS) and the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS). The GRE Board and Educational Testing Service are dedicated to the principle of equal opportunity, and their programs,

    services, and employment policies are guided by that principle. If state legislation that affects the GRE tests is enacted and becomes effective during the 2007?C08 testing year, testing may be curtailed in the states in which the new laws would apply. GRE scores are not the property of the examinee even though the use, reporting, and cancellation of scores are subject to various rights and restrictions as indicated in this Bulletin. The policies and procedures explained in this Bulletin are effective only for the 2007?C08 testing year (July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008) and supersede previous policies and procedures. The fees, terms, and conditions contained in this Bulletin are subject to change. See the GRE website for the most up-to-date information. Copyright 2007 by Educational Testing Service.
