Computer-Based and Online-Proctored Testing

Register as early as possible before your desired test date. Due to the amount of time required to process a registration, you may not be able to schedule a test appointment if you register within three calendar days of the day on which you plan to take the test. Test appointments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and seating is limited.

  1. Sign in to your account. First-time users will be required to create an account.

  2. During the registration process, you will be asked to

    • choose a test program;
    • select your test, subtest(s), or test section(s);

    • acknowledge your intention to register for alternative testing arrangements (if applicable);
    • designate institutions to receive your test results (Note: Only institutions designated during registration will automatically receive your test results.);
    • choose to have test results emailed to you;
    • answer background questions;
    • review and agree to testing rules;
    • submit payment using a credit, debit, or check card; and
    • schedule your test appointment.

After you schedule your test 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.

Your registration 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 registration will expire, and you will receive no refund or credit of any kind.
