Withdrawal/Refund Policy

If after registering for the PLACE you wish to withdraw from one or more tests for which you have registered, you must submit your request through your account on the PLACE website by 4:00 p.m. mountain time on the standard registration deadline. Refer to "Changing Your Registration" for information about how to withdraw from a test.

If your request is submitted by 4:00 p.m. mountain time on the standard registration deadline, you will receive a refund of all test fees paid. The registration processing fee will not be refunded. Refunds will be issued approximately five weeks after the test date.

You may not withdraw your registration or receive a refund if you register during the emergency registration period. 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.")

Payment Methods

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

The fees for services requested by mail ("Additional Service Fees" in the table above) must be paid by cashier's check or money order; personal checks are not accepted. Cashier's 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

An individual may take a test as many times as necessary to pass. Examinees who do not pass a test and wish to retake it may do so by completing the registration process again. If you register for a test that you have previously taken, you may be eligible for a $25 test fee reduction. If you took the test after June 2003 and are registering to take the same test at a subsequent administration, you will be eligible for this reduction.

Your previous registration will be confirmed during the registration process. If you are eligible, the amount you must pay will be adjusted to reflect the $25 reduction.

If you register to retake a PLACE test before receiving your score report from the first test date, your eligibility for the $25 retake reduction will not be affected. However, 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.

If you have any outstanding balance owed by you to Evaluation Systems after a test administration for which you were registered, your score report for that test date will not be produced and your test score(s) will not be reported to you, to the CDE, or to any institutions until your account is paid in full and cleared.

The following policies apply to you when you have an outstanding balance with Evaluation Systems:
