Registration for paper-based testing is available on the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, during all registration periods.
Internet registration periods end at 5:00 p.m. eastern time on the regular, late, and emergency registration deadlines for each test administration. Registrations submitted after the regular and late registration deadlines will incur additional registration fees and registration options may be limited.
Before you register. Before you register, please review the "Registration Checklist" to ensure that you have all of the information you need to complete the registration process. Because of laws protecting confidentiality and privacy, only you may register yourself for a test.
If you wish to request alternative testing arrangements, submit your request and any required documentation by mail or fax before the regular registration deadline. See "Registering for Alternative Testing Arrangements" for information about how to complete and submit the Alternative Testing Arrangements Request Form.
How to register. To register, select "Register Now" on the NYSTCE website and follow the instructions provided. If you don't have an account, you will be prompted to create one. See "About My Account" for information about creating and using an account. Be sure to have available your email address, social security number, and credit card information (number, expiration date, and name of cardholder). Enter your name as it appears on your government-issued identification. When you register online, you may sign up to receive your scores by email.
Payment. Payment must be made at the time of registration using a credit card (VISA or MasterCard only) or a debit or check card that carries the VISA or MasterCard logo and that can be used without the entry of a personal identification number (PIN). Bank cards without the VISA or MasterCard logo cannot be accepted. Additional fees apply for late and emergency registration. See "Test Fees and Payment Policies" for complete information about registration fees and payment policies.
Confirmation. After you have completed the Internet registration process, you will be sent an email acknowledging that you have submitted an Internet registration. You are not officially registered for the NYSTCE, 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.
After your registration has been processed and you have been assigned to a specific test site, you will receive an admission ticket by email. Print your admission ticket and bring it with you to the test site. You should also print a copy for your records.
Because of laws protecting confidentiality and privacy, only you can register yourself for a test or make inquiries regarding registration status or test scores.
