Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)

Before you apply to business school, you'll need to take the GMAT. This test measures the verbal, quantitative and analytical writing skills you'll need to succeed in a business school curriculum.

Complete GMAT information can be found on the Graduate Management Admission Council and mba.com websites.

FUNDING FOR THE GMAT
While the Guard will reimburse your GMAT fee, you are responsible for scheduling and paying for the GMAT up front. You must submit your reimbursement request within 90 days of your test date.

Your reimbursement request form must contain all required information and be signed by a DANTES test control officer (TCO) or alternate TCO. Test center personnel are not authorized to sign your reimbursement form. Contact your state education services officer (ESO) with any questions.

REGISTERING FOR THE GMAT
Generally, GMAT testing appointments are available six days a week, but test centers set their own hours to meet local and regional needs. To find out more, visit the mba.com registration page.

When you sign up as a user at mba.com, you'll be able to download the complete GMAT prep test preparation software for free.
