SMART Program

GRE Preparations

The GRE is required by most graduate schools. Some M.D./Ph.D. programs also require or suggest that you take the GRE general test and subject test. The SMART Program helps you prepares for the GRE General Test by supplying the most recent GRE course material and instruction. Workshops teach SMART participants about the GRE test, and how to prepare for the math, analytical writing, and verbal portions of the exam.

The SMART program was awarded a special grant from the National Science Foundation to develop these GRE Prep workshops in hope of giving its participants a better chance to succeed and to enter their graduate program of choice in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). Our grants include funds that support the SMART GRE Prep workshops, which are being used by campuses across the country.
