Sending Your SLS Scores

During registration, you may identify up to four institutions or licensing agencies that will receive your SLS scores for free.

Automatic Score Reporting

If you test in one of the following states, your scores are automatically sent to that state's Department of Education.

  • Arkansas
  • District of Columbia
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Mississippi
  • New Jersey
  • North Carolina
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Tennessee
  • Utah
  • Virginia

If the state you test in is different from the state to which you will apply for certification, or if the state is not on the automatic score recipient list, you must list the state as a score recipient for a score report to be sent to the state's teacher credentialing agency.

To change your free score recipients, you must do so at least three days before your test date. Within three days of your test or after you test, you may request additional score reports for a fee.

Ordering Additional Score Reports

Your SLS test scores are valid for 10 years, and you can order additional score reports at any point during that period. Each report costs $50 per score recipient and are nonrefundable. You'll automatically receive a copy when it’s sent to your score recipient.


You may order score reports online. After you sign in, click "Order Score Reports" and follow the online instructions to complete your order.

  • If you do not have sufficient credit or funds in your account to cover the registration or service(s) we have processed on your behalf, your scores will be withheld and an additional nonrefundable service fee of US$30 will be added to your account.
  • Services may be withheld for nonpayment of fees.
  • All outstanding balances incurred from prior ETS tests and/or services must be paid in full in order to register for any future ETS test or service.
  • When registering, online candidates may be given the option to pay in the local currency supported by their card issuer or in USD.
  • During the payment process you may be asked by your card issuing bank to verify cardholder identity by entering an authentication code. Failure to enter the required information or entry of invalid information will result in the sale being rejected. If you don't know your 3D-Secure passcode or password, and you are not being given the option to enroll online in the bank's pop-up screen, then you will need to contact your bank.
  • ETS reserves the right to add or delete payment options its own discretion and without notice.
