GRE Preparation Course  

Let us help you take the first step to an advanced degree and start on your path to success!

The GRE Prep Class from University of North Florida’s Division of Continuing Education will give you the skills and confidence you need to maximize your performance on the GRE. We are here to help you sharpen your skills and give you the tools to maximize your potential.

Our updated, comprehensive program covers each of the three main sections of the GRE® General Test—Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning. Our experienced instructors will walk you through each section and prepare you for the question types you are likely to encounter on test day.

Our new GRE class will provide you with:

  • Expert Instructors: Our highly trained instructors are here for you! Our experienced instructors understand the GRE and care about helping you achieve your goals.
  • Proven Strategies: Our GRE program was developed by test-preparation experts, who have years of experience writing test questions and preparing students for success on standardized exams.
  • Superior Materials: The GRE Prep Class includes a course workbook and a textbook filled with previously released test questions.
  • Online Support: Our online support package for both in-person and live-online GRE classes includes access to recordings of all class modules, an instructor-monitored question forum and online office hours. Access to online resources continues for 30 days after your last day of class, so you will still have support for your independent practice after class is over.
  • Convenient Schedule Options: In-person Test Prep classes are conveniently held on the campus of the University of North Florida in the Adam Herbert University Center with convenient, free parking. Our live-online class offers you the opportunity to take the class from anywhere at any time.
  • Value: The course fee includes all course materials, access to online resources and instruction from a trained professional who cares about your success.
