Candidates Testing at U.S. Test centers:   AUD, BEC, FAR or REG - $208.40                

Candidates Testing at International Test Centers:   AUD, BEC, FAR or REG - $356.55                                     

*The number of exam sections you select on an ILBOE exam application must be the same number of exams you intend to take within a six (6) month time frame. You must pay NASBA at one time for all the selected sections and must take the exams within six (6) months of your payment to NASBA. For example, if four (4) sections are selected, the same four (4) sections must be paid to NASBA in one payment and therefore, all four (4) must be taken within six (6) months. The same scenario is true if you select one (1), two (2) or three (3) within the six (6) month period.

The Payment Coupon is good for only 90 days.  If you do not pay by the expiration date, you must submit a Re-Exam application and pay the appropriate fees in order to continue the testing process.
