  2. Mail-In Registration

    This is also one of the methods and for this, you need to purchase or order a printed ISEE Student Guide. The mail-in form is in the center of this guide. To request for a printed guide, you need to email your name and mailing address to achaber@erblearn.org. The fee for the mail-in test registration is also $98.

  3. Registration by Phone

Important Points Regarding the Registration Process

There are a few important points you need to consider regarding the process of registration:

  • The registration is done on a first-come, first-served basis. When the registration process is complete, you will receive a Verification Letter that contains your testing schedule. You should receive this Verification Letter within two weeks of your registration. In case you do not receive it in time, you can call the Operations Office of the ISEE on the number (1800) 466 1320.
  • Upon receiving the Verification Letter do check for any clerical errors. To make corrections, if any, you need to call the Operations Office at the phone number mentioned above.
  • In case of mail-in registration, send in the form by mail early to register yourself in time. Allow a period of five days for your registration form to reach the testing office.

Hence, it can be concluded that you may apply by any of the three mentioned methods. The fee is same for all methods i.e. 98$. However, for the phone registration, you need to pay 20$ extra for phone usage. Making any changes in the testing schedule will cost you 25$ extra and in case you wish to cancel your test, you will receive a refund of 25$. Hence, keep in mind all these important points and register yourself in time for the test.
