How to change candidate address given while registering for GRE exam.

Can we change it at examination center during examination


GRE Address Change

I believe you can change the address you used during GRE registration at the test center.  To be safe call the GRE test center and confirm if thats possible. You can find the test center phone number at ETS registration site.

After you find out what they say, can you post a comment to this post? If Test center says “No”, then call Regional Registration center and then ETS. There should be a way to change your address after registering for GRE.

  • Best Case – Change Address at Test Center
  • Worst Case – Cancel and register for GRE with new address

Next : What name to use when registering for GRE?

      It doesn't matter if your GRE address and passport address are different.

    Hii I am worried that i registered for the GRE without creating an account on ets website. However now that I have created one, how can I use it to change the data in my old registration form.

    For the change of the address, no worries i called the test center regarding that and they said you can change whenever u want and the only important thing is your name in ID. If u want to chage the address u can login to ur gre account and use the link "change contact information" which is on the right – bottom of the page.

    You can change ur address at the test center itself,when u are about to enter the testing room,you will be given instructions by an administrator or some one,he'll ask you whether the information about you on the screen is k or not,then u can request him for the particular change ….i made changes to my address exactly like this…

    At last you can change your Address by sending e-mail to GRE authorities. I changed my address after my score report was sent to me because i did not get it because my address was registered wrong with them. Now they mailed me that they would send me a duplicate copy.
