To our GRE students:
As always, we are committed to the success and well-being of our students and our faculty. As a business, we try our best to remain in operation during periods of inclement weather to provide information about class cancellations in your area and to provide assistance to ensure that you can continue with your studies with minimal disruptions.
We have a team of Kaplan representatives ready to help. However, due to increased call volumes, students may experience a delay in reaching an Enrollment and Experience representative by telephone or email. We appreciate your patience during this time. Please be assured that we remain absolutely committed to your educational success and want to do our part in easing any concerns you may have.
If you are inquiring about your regularly scheduled classes, we will communicate any changes to your email and phone numbers on file. If you do not receive any notification, you should assume your class will meet as scheduled. If you are in the affected areas and your class has not been canceled please exercise judgment about whether to travel to the location.
Most importantly, we hope you and your families stay safe during this time. Your safety and well-being is a primary concern, and we look forward to continuing to support you as best we can.
At this point, it’s time for you—and us—to take stock of your progress and determine your next steps. Here’s a quick checklist to assess where you are in the process.
- Determined when you want to apply to school?

We wish you continued success on your path to graduate school.
To do your best on the GRE, research shows that you’re likely to need to study about 10 hours per week for up to 3 months. How do you know how to spend that time? Preparing for the GRE will likely be keeping you quite busy for a few months, which is not an easy prospect when you’re likely busy with other schoolwork or a job.
Here are some strategies for making the GRE one of your priorities:
- Don’t cram your studying into full-day weekend sessions; you’ll burn out if you try. You need to give yourself enough time to learn, practice, assess, and learn again.
- Set a target score. If you’ve got a target score, you’re more likely to monitor your own progress and stay motivated to follow your plan.
- Schedule time in your calendar. Don’t wait for free time to appear to start studying; block off time in your calendar and treat it like you would any other meeting, appointment, or obligation.
- Cut out the travel time to classes. At Kaplan, we’re using technology to give you all of Kaplan GRE—instruction and practice on the GRE content, Kaplan’s test-taking strategies, access to over 5,000 questions, our Higher Score Guarantee—all without asking you to leave your desk, wherever it is.

- And lastly, don’t wait. The sooner you start studying, the sooner you can free up time to work on the other components of the application.
