Register to Test

Registration is available online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.



Because of laws protecting confidentiality and privacy, only you may register yourself for a test. Select a testing method to learn how to register.

Computer-based testing

You should try to register as early as possible before your desired test date. Test appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis; you may not be able to schedule an appointment to test on your preferred date if you register within three calendar days of the day on which you plan to take the test.

See Requesting Alternative Testing Arrangements for information about how to request alternative testing arrangements.

How to Schedule Your Computer-Based Test

  1. Receive your Authorization to Test

    After you have completed the registration process, you will be sent an email acknowledging that you have submitted a registration. Within one business day, you will be emailed an Authorization to Test, which allows you to schedule a test appointment. Be sure to check the information on your Authorization to Test when you receive it. Notify Evaluation Systems immediately if any testing information needs to be corrected.

    If you lose your Authorization to Test or have not received it within three business days of submitting your registration, contact Evaluation Systems.

    Your Authorization to Test is valid for one year from the date of issue. If you do not schedule a test appointment and take your test within one year, or withdraw your registration within one year, your authorization will expire, and you will receive no refund or credit of any kind.

  2. Schedule your appointment according to the instructions in your Authorization to Test

  3. Receive your confirmation email

    After you schedule your appointment, you will be sent an email confirming your appointment and providing the address and phone number of the test center, as well as directions to the test center.

    If you lose your CBT confirmation or have not received it within three business days of scheduling (or rescheduling) your test, log in to your account to access your test appointment information, or contact Pearson VUE.

Paper-based testing

Registration periods end at 5:00 p.m. eastern time on the regular, late, and emergency registration deadlines for each test date. Registrations submitted after the regular and late registration deadlines will incur additional registration fees, and registration options may be limited.

You may make a request for alternative testing arrangements when you register during the regular, late, or emergency registration period. To ensure that there is adequate time to process your request, you are strongly encouraged to register and submit all required information by mail or fax as early as possible, preferably by the regular registration deadline. See Requesting Alternative Testing Arrangements for information about how to complete and submit the Alternative Testing Arrangements Request Form.

    You will be sent an email acknowledging that you have submitted your registration. You are not officially registered, however, until you subsequently receive a registration confirmation email. The registration confirmation email will generally be sent within one business day of receipt of your registration information.

  5. Receive your admission ticket

    After your registration has been processed and you have been assigned to a specific test center, you will receive an admission ticket by email, unless you requested alternative testing arrangements. If you requested alternative testing arrangements, you will receive your admission ticket by U.S. mail.

    Print your admission ticket and bring it with you to the test center. You should also print a copy for your records. Your admission to the test center will be delayed if you do not have a printed copy of your admission ticket. Electronic versions of your admission ticket will not be accepted.
