Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL)

Test center closings due to COVID-19 (coronavirus)   

Where local guidance permits, Pearson VUE-owned test centers (PPCs) have reopened for testing.  We encourage you to check this site often as circumstances continue to change. If you attempt to schedule an appointment and do not see your desired date available at the selected test center, you should:

·       Widen the area of your search to include additional test centers that may be available

·       Extend the date range of your search to view additional available appointments

As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, our first priority is the health and safety for employees and candidates and Pearson VUE test centers are complying with all state and local guidance. In addition, testing centers will be cleaning testing stations after each administration. 

Pearson is regularly updating COVID-19 information on a dedicated webpage, which has important candidate information regarding processes and procedures at the test center including, “What candidates need to know” and “Health and safety measures at Pearson VUE test centers.”

Please check this website and your email often as circumstances continue to change.  

If you have not received email notification of your test appointment being changed, you should plan to attend, as many of our partner sites, some of which may be located at colleges and universities, are making the determination to close or remain open based on their state and local guidance.  

To schedule or reschedule a test appointment:   

Please note that only test centers that are open will appear in the seat availability tool and during the scheduling process. Test availability is based on our current working knowledge of openings and may be subject to change.

If you are ill on the day of your test appointment:   

Do not report to the test center.  If you miss your appointment due to illness, please review the absentee policy for emergency circumstances, which includes information about requesting a refund.   

If your appointment was rescheduled by Pearson, you may withdraw your registration for a full refund.     

Please check the withdrawal and refund policy for more information.
