Withdrawal/Refund Policy

You will not receive a refund of the test fee if you cancel your test appointment and/or withdraw your registration.

If you have already scheduled your test appointment and wish to change the date, time, or location of your test appointment, you may reschedule your test appointment through your account. The deadline for rescheduling your test appointment online is 24 hours before your scheduled testing time. There is no fee for rescheduling a test appointment.

If you are absent from the test, you will not receive a refund or credit of any kind. (See the absentee policy in "Reporting to the Test Site.")

If you wish to withdraw your registration, refer to "Changing Your Registration" for information about canceling a test appointment and submitting a Withdrawal Request Form.

Payment Methods

The fees for Internet registration, telephone registration, and changes to registration made on the Internet must be paid using a credit card (VISA or MasterCard only) or a debit or check card that carries the VISA or MasterCard logo and that can be used without the entry of a personal identification number (PIN). Bank cards without a VISA or MasterCard logo cannot be accepted. The merchant name that will appear on your credit card statement is "Eval Systems Test Fee."

Fees for rescoring a test and for additional copies of test results must be paid by personal check, cashier's check, or money order. Checks and money orders must be made payable to Evaluation Systems in U.S. dollars. Please write the last five digits of your social security number on your payment. Do not send cash.

Payment Policies

If you register to take the same test on multiple test dates and pass the test on the first test date, you will not be issued a refund for your additional registrations on the basis of your passing performance.
