How to be a Person: Finding a GRE Test Location


If you’re a senior, the GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) may be one of the more anxiety provoking acronyms you’ll ever encounter–along with the LSAT, MCAT, GMAT, cat sat on the GMAT. Whoops. Free association. Sorry.

Because you must go through an airport-equivalent amount of security to take the exam–my experience involved metal detectors, many legal forms, and photos–Kenyon cannot administer the test and it is instead done by Prometric Test Centers. But if you can’t take the exam at Kenyon, where can you take it? And how to you get there? You have questions, and we have answers just below.

  • Mansfield: The closest option at about 26 miles away from Kenyon. Address of testing center:

Suite 6
Mansfield, OH 44907

  • Worthington: Slightly farther at approximately 38 miles away from Kenyon. Address of testing center:
