Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT)

Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT)

Before you apply to business school, you'll need to take the GMAT exam. 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 websites.

Funding for the GMAT

While the Guard will reimburse your GMAT test 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 testing centers set their own hours to meet local and regional needs. To find out more, visit the registration page.

Preparing for the GMAT

When you sign up as a user on, you'll be able to download the complete GMAT Prep test preparation software for free. This software includes full-length tests, test questions, explanation and scoring. When you register to take the GMAT, you'll also receive a free CD-ROM version of the GMAT Prep software.

For more information about preparation materials, visit the GMAT Test Preparation page.
