Test Fees and Payment Policies
IBT Fees and Payment Policies
|THEA IBT Test Fee|
THEA IBT test fees may be paid using a Visa or MasterCard, or with an Authorization Code provided by your school. The test center where you schedule your test appointment may charge additional administration fees. It is your responsibility to clarify test administration fees and policies with the test center directly.
The fees for THEA IBT are payable using an Authorization Code provided by your institution, using a credit card (VISA or MasterCard only), or using a debit or check card that carries the VISA or MasterCard logo and that can be used without the entry of a personal identification number (PIN). Bank cards without a VISA or MasterCard logo cannot be accepted. The merchant name that will appear on your credit card statement is "Internet Testing Systems."
Payment by credit card. If you are paying by credit card, you may pay the test fee during your registration online or when you arrive at the test center on the day of the test.
If you pay by credit card during online registration, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address you submitted when you created your profile. In the event that the confirmation e-mail is blocked by a spam filter, you may be able to find the e-mail in your "Junk" folder. You may also access your account at http://THEA.starttest.com, select "Order History," and print out your order detail. This information may be used as proof of payment at the test center when scheduling your appointment to test. Remember to bring your confirmation e-mail with you to the test center.
Payment by Authorization Code. If you are paying for the test with an Authorization Code, this will be done at the test center on the day of testing.
You must determine if your test fee will be paid by an Authorization Code provided by your school prior to paying by personal credit card. If you pay for the test using a credit card and are then given an Authorization Code, you will not be issued a refund for any fees previously paid.
Payment for test fees is due in full prior to testing. Once you submit your payment you will not be permitted to withdraw, although you may reschedule your appointment by contacting the institution where you will be testing. Test fees will not be refunded, but they may be applied to a rescheduled test date.
