What to Bring to the Test Center

You MUST bring the following with you to the THEA IBT:

If you have paid by credit card, bring your confirmation e-mail as proof of payment.
If your account was created prior to your test date, make sure you know the e-mail address and password that are associated with your account. You will not be able to test without this information!
Several sharpened No. 2 pencils with erasers (no pens or mechanical pencils); pencils will not be supplied at the test center
Two pieces of identification, one with a recent photograph, as described in "Identification Policy" below

Notepaper will be provided for you to use during testing; however, no other notepaper or note-taking devices may be used during the test.

An onscreen calculator will be provided for the Math Section of the test; no other calculators are permitted.

See "Test Center Rules" for information about what is not allowed at the test center.

Identification Policy

In order to take the THEA IBT, you must bring two forms of personal identification, one of which is photographic identification, to the test center. Examples of photographic identification include, but are not limited to, the following:

Acceptable forms of non-photographic identification include, but are not limited to, the following: pay stub, insurance card, social security card, valid credit card, yearbook, description of the examinee written on high school or college stationery and signed by an official of that institution.

All forms of identification must be originals. Photocopies will not be accepted. If you do not have photographic identification, you may not be admitted to the test center.

If you are refused admission because you do not provide proper identification, you will be considered absent and will receive no refund or credit of any kind. You may reschedule your test appointment at the test center's convenience.

If the name on your identification differs from the name in which you are registering, you must bring official, original verification of the change (e.g., original marriage certificate, original court order).

Before testing, the test proctor will verify that the information on your identification documents matches your registration information. If your score report is produced at the test center after test completion, the proctor will also verify that the name appearing on the score report matches the name on your identification documents.
