Payment Policy

Duration of Payment Validity

After payment, your registration will be valid for one year. If you do not take the test or withdraw your registration within that period, your registration will expire and you will receive no refund or credit of any kind.

Payment Processing

If you have any outstanding balance owed by you to Evaluation Systems after a test appointment for which you were registered, all of your scores for that test date may be permanently voided and therefore not reported to you; to the relevant state agency responsible for educator certification, if applicable; or to any institutions.

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

  • You will be assessed a $20 fee to cover the processing required to clear your account.
  • You will not be allowed to register for future test appointments until your balance, which includes the additional fee, is paid in full.
  • Any credits or refunds for which you may be eligible will be applied first to your outstanding debt, with any excess to be returned to you.

If a credit card charge for an Evaluation Systems service for you is disputed:

  • You may not be allowed to make any future payments by credit card.
  • You must make your payment to clear your account by cashier's check or money order only.
  • If you attempt to pay for any further services by cashier's check or money order before clearing your account, any payments received will be applied first to your outstanding debt, with any excess applied to the requested services.

Additionally, if a personal check submitted by you is returned by the bank:

  • You will not be allowed to make any future payments by personal check.
  • You must make your payment to clear your account by cashier's check or money order only, unless you are making a subsequent credit card payment for additional services, in which case your credit card will be billed for both the outstanding balance and the additional requested services.
  • If you attempt to pay for any further services by credit card before clearing your account, your credit card will be billed for the amount of all services you have requested, as well as the outstanding balance owed. You agree to pay for all such services and outstanding balances in the event your credit card company does not.
  • If you attempt to pay for any further services by cashier's check or money order before clearing your account, any payments received will be applied first to your outstanding debt, with any excess applied to the requested services.
