New Video from the ETS Office of Disability Policy
A new informational video from the ETS Office of Disability Policy is now available. This video presents a brief overview of the Office of Disability Policy, highlights some recent legal changes under the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act, and reviews the application process for test takers with disabilities.

Payment Processing
Test fee payment processing is now provided by Texas.gov, the official website of Texas. The price of this service, which is not refundable, includes funds that support the ongoing operations and enhancements of Texas.gov, which is provided by a third party in partnership with the State. Test takers may now be required to process two individual payments to complete an order transaction. This is determined by the services being requested in the final order. Failure to complete both payments will result in cancellation of the order.

Test & Service Refunds
All past and future processed test and service orders are now refundable up to 180 days from completion of initial order payment. The 180-day refund policy begins with the date the initial payment transaction was processed. If a test or service order is changed (e.g., change of test date), the 180-day refund policy applies to the date the registration was initially processed. Test takers canceling an order prior to 180 days from the initial transaction will be refunded according to the “Canceling a Test Registration” policy found in the Registration Bulletin.

New Policy Regarding Watches in the Testing Room
To ensure security and fairness to everyone, test takers are no longer permitted to wear watches in the testing room. This policy has changed due to the many different types of watches that are now available (e.g., calculator, computing, digital, watches with alarms, smart watches, stopwatches) and the functions that can be included in these watches.

Some watches have functions, such as alarms, that are distracting to other test takers. Many smart watches are capable of higher-end functions such as connecting to other mobile devices where data can be transferred to and from the other devices. These types of watches can also run apps that can include functions such as a camera or a recording device.

Test takers will be asked to remove and store their watches before they enter the testing room. Test administrators are not permitted to hold watches for test takers.

Resources for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-Related Needs
The Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs (PDF) contains procedures for requesting testing accommodations and registration forms. The Supplement should be used in conjunction with the information found in the most recent Registration Bulletin.
