The following is a list of graduate math programs which do not require the GRE (general or subject) for at least the application cycle of Fall 2022. List curated by Emily Winn (email: emily_winn@brown.edu; Twitter: @EmilyWinn13). If you have additions or updates to this list, please comment on the spreadsheet, email me, or contact me on Twitter and it will be updated accordingly. Optional is placed into two categories: Optional, which means that applicants will not be penalized without a GRE score or with a "substandard" GRE score, but those who submit them may get a boost from a good score; and recommended, which means that applicants without a GRE score will be considered but the department strongly suggests you submit them anyway, and lack of score may hurt an application. A note for prosepctive students: This information is based on department websites, some of which may not be updated. You are always encouraged to email programs you are interested in for clarification on policies or to request a test waiver. The worst they can say is no!

A note on USNWR rankings: US News and World Report Rankings of graduate programs are based on overall departments; there are plenty of quality departments that are unranked where you will be supported and funded through your master's or PhD. Where you choose to apply should include who you want to work with, what areas you want to specialize in, and whether the environment is healthy. Canadian schools are also left off USNWR.AMS Grad School Search site: http://www.ams.org/programs/students/findgradprograms/fgp-search
