If you need to send scores later you will pay $12 per college. Students will also need to upload a photo when they register. That photo will be printed on the student's test admission ticket and the roster provided to proctors at testing sites. Testing staff will compare the submitted photo to a photo ID and to the student in person at the testing site. Don’t forget to upload the photo, and to bring an ID with you on testing day!
