Registration

Registration for computer-based testing is available only on the Internet by selecting "Register Now." You should try to register as early as possible before your desired test date, as seating is limited. Before registering, you may check real-time seat availability and review test center locations.

Please note seat availability information is subject to change. Due to the amount of time required to process a registration, you may not be able to schedule an appointment to test if you register within three calendar days of the day on which you plan to test.

Retaking a Computer-Based Test

Please note the following retake guidelines:

Multi-Subject

There are four Multi-Subject tests available for four different grade levels. Each Multi-Subject test has three parts. Part Three is shared by all four Multi-Subject tests; therefore, if you are seeking more than one Multi- Subject certificate, you need to pass Part Three only once. The retake policy for the Multi-Subjects parts is indicated below.
