Fees are subject to change without notice. The above amounts are inclusive of any Value Added or similar taxes that ETS is liable to pay. In jurisdictions where the customer is required to account for any local taxes due, the price remitted to ETS excludes those taxes. In those circumstances, it is the sole responsibility of the customer to pay those taxes to the local tax authority. ETS is not responsible or liable for collecting and remitting those taxes on the customer's behalf.

If your payment is declined by your bank or your debit/credit card provider, you will be charged a fee of US$20.

Payment Policies

Please make sure all payments for tests and services:

  • are paid in full at the time the service is requested
  • have the correct numeric and written dollar amount
  • have appropriate signature(s)

Any outstanding balances from prior ETS tests or services must be paid in full before you register. Services or test scores may be withheld for non-payment.

If you do not submit the correct fee, your registration form or request for service will be returned.

Payment methods are subject to change without notice.
