(Veterans must have served at least 181 days of active duty at the time of registration.) All fees are non-refundable and must be paid at the time of registration. Fees should be paid in the form of a money order or certified check made out to the appropriate local or regional board of education. The registrar will instruct the applicant in this regard.
