Standardized Tests

You can self-report your Standardized Test scores or report tests you plan to take in the Standardized Tests section. Some of the programs you apply to may require you to report certain test scores. Visit the PharmGrad Program Directory to read the standardized test requirements for your designated programs.

Note that self-reporting your scores is not the same as providing official scores to your programs. If your programs require official test scores, see Sending Official Test Scores for more information.

Official GRE Scores

GRE Logo

Official GRE Scores are submitted electronically and directly by ETS to PharmGrad. There is no single GRE code for PharmGrad. Instead, you must request your official scores to be sent to a  special PharmGrad GRE code for each graduate program that differs from the program or school’s regular GRE code. Programs can only see scores that are sent with their special code. See the PharmGrad Applicant Help Center to view the list of PharmGrad GRE codes. If your program is not on this list, contact it directly to determine how you should report your scores.

Official GRE scores from ETS can be received by PharmGrad at any point during the application cycle, even after your application is submitted or verified; however, some programs may have a deadline by which they want your scores posted. Once your official GRE scores are attached to your application, they cannot be removed.

To submit your official GRE scores to PharmGrad:

  1. Review the list of PharmGrad GRE Codes to determine your program's special PharmGrad code, if applicable. 
  2. If you are applying to multiple programs, arrange for ETS to send your official scores to the PharmGrad code for each of your selected programs to ensure that they can view your scores. 
  3. Contact ETS directly about score turnaround and processing times, as needed.
  4. After ETS processing, scores are sent to PharmGrad in batches and then posted to applications every 2-3 days. Only scores that you requested using PharmGrad codes will post to your application. You can view scores attached to your application in the Standardized Tests section of the Check Status tab.

It is 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 PharmGrad customer service and provide them with the following details:

  • First and last names
  • Date of birth
  • GRE Registration ID Number
  • CAS ID
  • Test date and date scores were sent by ETS

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 will contact ETS to troubleshoot.

If your name or date of birth appears differently on your GRE than it does on your PharmGrad 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 PharmGrad customer service so they can manually connect the scores to your application. 

Official TOEFL Scores


Use TOEFL PharmGrad Code 8246

If English is not your first (primary) language, your designated programs may require you to submit official Test of English as a Foreign Language or TOEFL scores by the application deadline. Please visit the PharmGrad Program Directory for program requirements. 

To submit your official TOEFL scores to PharmGrad, go to and request your scores be sent to PharmGrad using code 8246. It takes approximately 10-12 business days from the date you make the request to post to your application. 

PharmGrad does not hold applications for missing TOEFL scores, but programs may not consider affected applicants if they are missing or late.
