ISEE by ERB

Registration

Test dates fill up quickly—we recommend registering as early as possible in order to secure your ideal date. We also recommend that you verify any application deadlines with the schools to which your student is applying to ensure that score reports are received in a timely manner.

In order to meet the needs of every family, ISEE testing is available at a variety of test sites. Testing options like format and group size will vary from location to location. Despite these differences, the test is always administered the same way by proctors following specific testing instructions provided by ERB. Regardless of where your student tests, their experience will be secure, professional, and consistent with the experience at other test sites.

Testing Fee Waiver Programs

To defray the costs of testing, fee waivers are available for families in financial need. ISEE National Fee Waivers cover the fees for testing at a school or remotely at home. The ISEE Prometric Fee Waiver covers the testing fee for testing at a Prometric Testing Center.
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 fee waiver.

To avoid incurring additional fees, carefully review our rescheduling and cancellation policies prior to registering for a test. Please note that Prometic Test Centers have different fees than other test sites.
