Graduate Record Examinations (GRE)

Graduate Records Examinations

To submit GRE scores: Contact the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to send official test scores for the Graduate Records Examination. You may also use this site to submit your Chemistry Subject test score. The submission of GRE scores is optional, but is recommended for those who believe their GRE scores will help support their application. 

Our department does not have an expected GRE score. We look at a composite of each student's application materials, so we are not able to set a specific threshold for these scores.

The institution code for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is 1836. We do not have a specific department code, so you may choose whichever code is the closest to Chemistry or if you do not see Chemistry as an option, you may use 0000. All GRE scores are received in the same system, so as long as you enter the correct university code, we will still be able to view your scores. 

Note: ETS sends GRE scores through a Third-Party, so it can take up to three weeks for scores to arrive at the institution. 

Please contact the Graduate Admissions Office if you have any further questions.
