How do I register to take a test?

Registration for CAT tests can only be done online and by phone.

How do I get a copy of the Registration Bulletin?

What do I do if I need to change my test, test center, test date or test session?

Requests to change your test, test date, test center or test session can be done online or by phone. Change requests for PBT tests can also be done by completing and submitting a Change Request form. Change Request forms are available in the Download Library for the test you are taking. Fees, payment policies and completion and submission instructions are on the form.

A test date can only be changed to a date within the current testing year. If you are affiliated with an Educator Preparation Program, you must be preapproved for the new test you are planning to take.
