Official GRE Scores are submitted electronically to University of South Alabama directly from ETS using the GRE code #1880. Paper copies are not accepted.
Official GRE scores from ETS can be received at any point during the application cycle, even after your application is submitted. Note, however, that some programs may require scores be posted by a specific date; check with your programs to ensure you meet all deadline requirements.
To request your Official GRE scores:
- Provide code #1880 to ETS and request that your scores be released. Check with ETS about their turnaround and processing times (which generally take 10-12 business days).
- After ETS processing, scores are sent to University of South Alabama in batches and then posted to applications every 2-3 days. Only scores that you requested using code #1880 will post to your application. You can view scores attached to your application in the Standardized Tests section of the Check Status tab.
- Once your Official GRE scores are attached to your application, they cannot be removed.
It's your responsibility to follow up on any missing GRE scores in a timely manner. If your scores are not posted within ETS's processing period, contact ETS and ask which Batch # your scores were sent in. Then, contact application support to provide them with this Batch #. We will use this information to determine if we have received the batch, and to locate your scores, if possible. If your scores aren't found, we'll contact ETS to troubleshoot.
Note: If your name or date of birth appears differently on your GRE than it does on your application, your scores will not automatically post to your account. This often happens with applicants with hyphens, apostrophes, etc., in their names. Wait until ETS processes the scores, then contact application support so we can manually connect the scores to your application.
