Options available for registering for the PLACE include online, telephone and U.S. mail registration. However, not every registration option is available for every type of registration. Online registration, which can be accomplished 24 hours a day any day of the week and even on holidays, can be used for regular, late or emergency registration. If you must complete a late registration, it needs to be done by 5 p.m. eastern time on your test's registration deadline. Another option for regular registration is the U.S. mail. In this case, the completed form and payment must be postmarked by the deadline. Those who miss the regular registration deadline have two choices. They can complete a late registration online or through the U.S. mail. If online, registration must be completed by the late registration deadline. If you are using the mail, a late PLACE registration form and fees must be sent with enough time so that it will be received (not just postmarked) by the deadline date. Telephone registration is not available for regular or late registration periods, unless you have previously taken a PLACE test. Those who miss late registration can still undergo emergency registration online or by calling (413) 256-2892 or (866) 565-4894 Monday through Friday, holidays excluded. Both late and emergency PLACE registration will require additional payment. When preparing to register, be aware that all fees must be paid up - front. Register to take the PLACE exam at the PLACE website.
If you need to make changes to the test date, test subject or test location, you can do so by submitting a Change of Registration Request form as well as payment of additional fees. If you must withdraw from a test without rescheduling, a Withdrawal/Refund Request Form must be received by 5:00 p.m. eastern time by the deadline date for that test's late registration in order to receive a partial refund.
PLACE registration fees vary upon the test or tests chosen. There is an additional $30 fee for late registration. Emergency registration will add $50. Computer - based testing adds $60. Additional services are available, and fees vary.
Make online PLACE registration payments with VISA or MasterCard. Debit or check cards showing a VISA or MasterCard insignia that don't need a PIN are also accepted. Mail registration can be paid by personal or certified check or money order. Cash is not accepted.
