How far back can I search for GMASS® names?

With the GMASS® service, you can search the most recent 18 months of prospect information. Your search can include prospective students who have taken the GMAT® exam, plan to take the exam, or haven't taken the exam but have created an profile within that time period.

How much do GMASS® names cost?

GMASS names cost $0.75 per name.

Why does the same name always appear in each search I download?

At the end of every search you download, we insert a seed name to ensure compliance with the GMASS Terms of Use. This seed name is for your protection as it enables GMAC to monitor your communications to GMASS contacts, preventing CAN SPAM and privacy violations. There is no cost to you for the seed name and it should not be removed from your downloaded searches.

Will my current payment information be saved in the GMASS® system?

If you have open purchase orders, they will not expire as you enter the new subscription year. Otherwise, you will need to submit a new purchase order to obtain a new GMASS subscription.

For your security, we do not store credit card information in our database, but you may create a payment profile that will recall this information from our secure processing vendors. When you submit a credit card number in the GMASS Workspace, your payment profile is created automatically. You may choose to store the payment profile for future use. If you choose not to store the payment profile, you may use it for 60 days, after which it will be deleted.
