Trapeza Online Payment Policy Change (Effective August 4, 2014)

Trapeza online exams require advance payment before an exam can be taken. If payment is being made with a credit card or PayPal account, the payment must be made before the exam will initiate. If payment is being made with a check, money order, cashiers check or cash, the payment must be received at the ETA Headquarters before the exam can be taken. Verification of prepaid exam fees must be made by the proctor when the exam is being assigned. If a school is using a Purchase Order or needs to be invoiced, the PO number or account name will be required in the PO box before the exam will be available.
