Requesting a Waiver

A fee waiver request must be made PRIOR to registration for the required assessment, because the voucher code issued will be entered when paying for the assessment on the Pearson website.

To be considered for a $50.00  fee waiver for a test, submit a completed Fee Waiver Request Form to the Professional Education Services office. The form can be emailed to Once the request is received, if vouchers are still available, a one-time voucher with a code to enter when paying for the assessment on the Pearson website will be emailed. 

*Please note: Pearson cancellation policy must be followed in order to receive a refund for registration fees.  If this policy is not followed, registration fees will not be refunded, and the fee waiver will also be lost.  In this case, Missouri State will not grant a second fee waiver voucher for the same test.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the Person Fee Waiver Voucher for test preparation materials? 

No, Pearson has limited the use of these vouchers to registration for the MoGEA and MoCA exams. If you add test preparation materials to your shopping cart when registering and then try to pay with a voucher, it will only apply to the registrations.

How many vouchers can I request in an academic year? 

You can only request one $50.00 voucher per year. You must be completing the assessments within that year. Please do NOT request a voucher during the current academic year for a test you will be taking next year. This voucher must be used to schedule a test before August 31, 2023. The test will need to be completed within one year of the registration date. Voucher funds not used by April 1, 2023 will be revoked and redistributed. Candidates may register for an exam up to a year in advance.

Can I use the voucher on multiple registrations at different times? 

No, these are "one-time use" vouchers.
