Test Scores — MA & Ph.D.

UT Austin ETS Code



* There is no Departmental code * 

The university generally receives scores four to six weeks after a test is taken if the university is designated as a score recipient at the time of testing. If you are sending scores from a prior test, the scores must still be valid at the start of the semester for which you are applying (within the last five years for the GRE and two years for the TOEFL or IELTS). 


Students who have gained admission in recent years, with funding offers, have averaged the following scores/percentiles on the GRE. If multiple sets of scores are submitted, the highest of each set is considered:



≥ 90th percentile


≥ 55th percentile

Analytical Writing

≥ 85th percentile
