Registration Questions

You will want to register for your exam as soon as possible. The longer you wait to register for your exam the fewer options you will have to choose from. In high demand testing periods, some testing centers will reach scheduling capacity--This is especially true during the final days of the testing window. To ensure you can select your desired testing location/date/time you will want to register early. We do not advise you to wait until the testing window starts to schedule your exams.

Please note that on the last day of the exam window, scheduling will end at 7:30 PM. We do not advise students to schedule their testing appointment that late into the testing window.
