GRE Review

Interested in applying to graduate school?  Taking the GRE exam is your first step in the right direction!  We believe that SHSU students should be able to compete right along with others across the nation and to ensure you the best possible opportunity to perform well on the exams, we offer a FREE GRE Prep Session two times a semester.  The only cost to you is the purchase of any reputable study guide from which you should put in significant study time before attending our prep session.  For scheduling and more information, check out the FAQ’s listed below.


How can I register?

Participants are required to come by the SAM Center, CHSS Building, Ste 190K to fill out the registration form. If you are interested in The Woodlands Campus (TWC) session, you may also register at the One Stop Office. If you have extenuating circumstances that prevent you from coming into the office, please contact us. This course is FREE and spots fill up very quickly so come by as soon as possible.

See http://www.ed2go.com/shsu/SearchResults.aspx?SearchTerms=gre for more information.

Who is eligible to participate?

Current SHSU students and alumni planning to take the GRE this semester are eligible to participate in one of the programs offered.


How much does the program cost?

Free, Free, Free!  You should already have a reputable study guide from which you are studying from. If you do not, this will be the only cost to you. 


Where can I find a study guide? Which do you recommend?

A reputable study guide can be found in most bookstores and online.  We do not make a specific recommendation, though most students prefer to purchase Kaplan, Barron’s, or Princeton Review guides. 


Can I attend this review session more than once?

Because of the demand for a limited number of spaces, we ask that students only participate in one session before taking their exam to allow other students an opportunity to review with us.  We also recommend that you attend the session closest to the time you will be taking the actual exam.  So, if you are taking the exam in the spring, we recommend taking the prep session in the spring as well. 


Do I have to attend every night?

Yes!  Our instructors dedicate their time to you and work hard to prepare for each day of the session.  Also, keep in mind that there may have been other students who would have come each night, but did not get into the program due to it being full.  Please take advantage of all that we are offering with this program, including the time!


Where do I find information on the exam itself? (i.e. registration, fees, schedule)
