Payment Procedure

IMPORTANT: Over-the-counter bank deposit  and payment via credit card are the only official modes of payment recognized by the registration system. We strongly discourage paying via online or mobile fund transfers or via ATM deposit, as these transactions are NOT automatically traceable to your PhiLSAT application. Your name may NOT be included in the room assignments and you may NOT be able to take the test. THE SAME GOES IF YOU PAY AFTER THE PAYMENT DEADLINE.

1. Over-The-Counter Bank Transaction
If you choose to pay by bank deposit, you must go to the nearest Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) branch and accomplish a Deposit/Payment Slip using the bank reference numbers and CEM BPI account number given on your PhiLSAT ID Form.  Only cash and full payment of the testing fee is accepted.  The bank may collect a certain amount as additional service charge.  Keep the Client’s copy of the deposit slip for reference or verification purposes.

Also, please be reminded that you are not completely registered or fully qualified to take the PhiLSAT if you have NOT paid the testing fee even if you have already downloaded, printed, and accomplished your PhiLSAT Identification Form.

There are two (2) modes of payment:

1. Over-The-Counter Bank Deposit

Bring your PhiLSAT ID Form to the nearest Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) or Banco de Oro (BDO) and fill-up the deposit/transaction slip. Only full cash payment is acceptable.  The bank may collect an additional service charge. Keep the client’s copy of the deposit slip for reference or verification purposes.
