Prometric Test Centers

ISEE testing is currently available at Prometric Test Centers, where possible, in the U.S. and Canada. Please check the status of test centers in your area for Covid-19-related closures and other updates.

Prometric testing centers offer the ISEE test in the online format for students entering Grades 5-12. Over 400 Prometric testing centers are located around the globe to administer secure, standardized tests for a variety of organizations. Families should be aware that there will be other students and adults taking other types of tests at these centers. A parent or guardian is required to stay on-site with the student for the duration of the test. Students automatically type the essay at Prometric.

Prepare for Success

We offer a variety of resources and tips to help students and families feel prepared for test day including, sample questions, interactive preparation options, and items to bring on test day.

Testing Fee Waiver Programs

Fee waivers to defray the costs of testing are available for families in financial need. The Dr. Ben D. Wood fee waiver covers the large group testing fee at a school. Dr. Wood was actively involved in the activities of ERB and remained engaged in our organization throughout his life. This fee waiver was established in his honor in 1985. The Dr. David Magill fee waiver covers only the Prometric testing fee.
Fee waiver inquiries should be addressed to the school(s) to which the candidate is applying, not the ISEE Operations Office or ERB. Please contact a school to which you are applying for information on receiving a waiver. Only schools that are ISEE test sites may issue a Ben D. Wood fee waiver.
Do you have applicants in need of testing accommodations? ERB makes every effort to accommodate students who are unable to take the ISEE under standard conditions due to a documented learning difference or physical challenge.
