As a United States-based corporation, College Board and its overseas service providers are subject to U.S. economic sanctions, laws, and regulations. Therefore, College Board is prohibited from providing testing services to or accepting registrations from Sanctioned Persons unless specifically licensed or otherwise authorized by the U.S. government. Sanctioned Persons include persons residing in certain areas and persons designated by the U.S. government as Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.
If a Sanctioned Person attempts to register, College Board or a U.S. financial institution might block the registration or payments submitted by or for such Sanctioned Persons. If payment isn’t blocked, College Board is required to cancel the registration and may not be able to refund the payment.
