International Payments and Refunds


Test and registration fees (including late fees and telephone re-registration fees) cannot be refunded, even if you cancel your test scores or are absent on test day.

The following fees are refundable only under specific circumstances:

  • Question-and-Answer Service or Student Answer Service is refundable only if your order has not yet been fulfilled or if you missed your test date (for example, you were absent or you had to take a makeup test).
  • Additional score reports that you ordered at the time of registration are refundable only if you are absent.

If you ordered QAS and your order was not fulfilled (for example, because you had to take a makeup test), contact us to find out if you are entitled to a refund. Refunds are processed beginning six weeks after the test date.
