Voucher Policies and Procedures

Accept cash, checks, and money orders from students

Programs can use vouchers and then collect cash, checks and money orders from the individual students. Testing centers and organizations can also use their business credit cards to schedule students as an alternative form of payment. Read more about these options below to find the best fit for your testing program.

Option 1: Use vouchers to accept cash, checks, and money orders

Your testing center can sell vouchers to students for the students to use as payment.

How it works for your program

Your testing center can purchase vouchers by going to visit the Voucher Store. Your testing center must pay with a credit card or you can request a credit line for the testing center. However, if your testing center requests a credit line, it must be approved before vouchers can be purchased on credit.

Credit line approvals may take five to seven business days. GED Testing Service vouchers are sold and administered through Pearson VUE.

Option 2: Use a testing center credit line to accept cash, checks, and money orders

How it works for your program

To use this form of payment, you must be a testing center and must schedule students directly (no online scheduling available.)
When scheduling a test, the testing center must pick “Test Center Credit” as the form of payment. Enter any discount codes, if applicable, and complete the transaction. Remember to cancel scheduled tests if a student is unable to attend, otherwise the charges will appear on you monthly invoice.
