hi

I wanted to register for a GMAT test and found that mba.com is asking for Voucher or promotion code. Do you know where I can get one?

Thanks

we (BTG forum) dont have any voucher or coupons/promotional codes.
but we'll investigate if there's such thing existing...


Are you sure it was MBA.COM ? I dont remember this step during signup...
they may have added this recently....

Does anyone have the mba.com test promotion code? Is there a cheaper way to take this test?

there's a trick when they call it a cheaper way for signing up a GMAT date.

major GMAT test preparation / coaching institutions offer GMAT voucher/ promotional code. BUT for that you'll need to buy their $1000+ GMAT course ;)

Actually there IS a voucher

You get a voucher by going to the financial aid office of your university. You fill out some paperwork and they look at the income you reported on FAFSA and on the paper work to determine your eligibility. If approved you receive a voucher code that you can use online at mba.com.

Again.. you must prove financial need.

Thanks for the info mate... :)

Would you back this with some external link/resource where it's stated?

I should gather more concrete information on this matter. So far all I can provide is the article I'd published about GMAT voucher & promotional codes

Hope that helps.

Even I have somehow earned a so called gmat voucher or promotion code, which I'm planning to give away to one of my friend whose financial status is something I am not sure about, and now I am stuck, where are you Eric, please guide me about this new fuss, gmat voucher or promotion code!!

I have found the voucher its called a fee waiver but it has a catch to it for the test taker the info is posted below.
https://www.gmac.com/gmac/thegmat/gmatfeewaiverprogram/

GMAC does not provide fee waivers directly to test takers; rather, fee waivers are provided to schools upon request. Availing these fee waivers, schools will have an opportunity to extend access where they see a need. We offer schools up to 10 fee waivers every year to use at their discretion as part of a program or otherwise to help economically disadvantaged test takers. Additional fee waivers may be available upon request.

Schools can request fee waivers by sending an email to feewaivers@gmac.com with the following information:

1. Name of the school and business program
2. Number of fee waivers requested
3. A brief summary of the nature of the outreach program, if applicable, for underserved economically disadvantaged candidates

Schools will receive the requested fee waiver codes via a secured email. Test takers can then use the fee waiver code when they register for their GMAT appointment, either online at mba.com or by calling GMAT Customer Service in their region. Each fee waiver code is good for the entire GMAT fee and expires within one year of the date on which the school received the code. [/list]

your financial aid office will have the vouchers. If they do not, you can ask them to apply for 10 vouchers for free. here is the link to explain....
