Test Fees

2017 Test Fees

Test-takers must submit payment directly to the GW Confucius Institute prior to 5:00 pm on the registration deadline. View our payment policy page for more information on accepted payment methods. 

No refunds will be issued for test registration fees. In the period between the registration deadline and 10 days prior to the test date, registrants may switch his/her test date. However, he/she will incur an extra fee of 30% of the original test fee. Once the registration fee payment has been completed, you are unable to change test levels. For example, if you register for HSK 2, then decide you would like to take the HSK 3 exam; once the payment is processed, you must pay an entirely new registration fee to take HSK 3, and the HSK 2 registration fee will be forfeited.
