Fee Reductions for the PPAT® Assessment

Test fee reductions may be available for college students who meet all eligibility criteria. If you qualify for a fee reduction, a portion of the test fee may be waived.

You are eligible for a fee reduction only once during a testing year. There are a limited number of waivers available per submission window and per educator preparation program. All requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Original documents must be received in order for processing to begin. The fee waiver cannot be combined with prepaid vouchers.

Note: You must create an ETS Performance Assessment account prior to requesting a fee reduction.
