Obtaining an ETS CSDCAS Code for your School
You may already have a GRE code unique to your program, but in order to have official scores delivered directly into WebAdMIT, you must submit a request to ETS by completing the GRE Score Reporting Form for CSDCAS Member Institutions by contacting ETS Code Control at (609) 771-7091 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once ETS assigns your CSDCAS GRE code to your program, we will post the information on the applicant portal so students are aware of the code for electronic delivery. We also encourage you to post this information on your website.
If your university will accept these official GRE scores reported through CSDCAS and does not need to receive a second official GRE report directly from ETS, there is no additional cost to you. If, however, your university wants to receive official scores directly from ETS in addition to those reported through CSDCAS, ETS will charge an annual fee for sending the scores twice (once to CSDCAS and again to your University). The annual fee is $300 for paper scores, and $300 for Scorelink Internet delivery (not available to new users). If you wish to continue to receive GRE scores as you have in the past, there is no action that you need to take.
Your institution can download GRE score reports in multiple formats without encryption software free of charge through the new ETS Data Manager.
If you have any questions about obtaining a GRE Institution Code for your CSDCAS program, please contact ETS Code Control at 1-609-771-7091 or email@example.com.
If your program requires a supplemental application, don’t forget to include it in your program home page and your school website. CSDCAS is not responsible for collecting supplemental applications or any fees associated with it.
