Need Accommodations? You must request accommodations before registering for a test.


 Test Dates and Locations

Registering online is the fastest and easiest way to secure a testing date. If you are a parent or guardian, you should create a parent account online where you can register and manage testing for multiple students. Each student within your parent account will have a separate profile, testing dates, and score reports. If you plan to request accommodations for your student(s), you must do so before registering for a test date. There are a variety of locations at which your student(s) can take the ISEE. Testing fees and test format availability will vary by location. 



Large Group Testing (at a School)

Many ERB member schools offer ISEE testing for the convenience of local students and families. The number of students testing at a site will vary by school. Testing format availability (paper or online) will vary by location. ERB provides these schools with standard administration procedures.

Ben D. Wood Fee Waiver Program

Dr. Ben D. Wood was actively involved in the activities of ERB throughout his life. A grant to defray the costs for testing was established in his honor in 1985. Students in financial need may apply for an ISEE registration fee waiver which covers the cost of large group testing at a school or testing at a Prometric testing office. Fee waivers cover only the standard registration fee—not any additional or optional fees.


Fee waivers are granted only by schools—not the ISEE Operations Office or ERB. To request a fee waiver, please contact one of the schools to which your student is applying.
