Reporting to the Test Site

Is Computer-Based Testing Right for Me?

Your MTTC computer-based testing (CBT) confirmation lists your test selection, test date, testing time, and test center. Please report to the test center 15 minutes before your scheduled testing time. On the day of the test, you may wish to dress comfortably in layers. This will allow you to adjust for the temperature at the test center, which may vary and may not be under the control of the test administrators. Please wear soft-soled shoes to help maintain a quiet testing environment. See "What to Bring to the Test Site" and "Test Site Rules" for more information.

Late Arrival Policy

It is essential that you report for your test appointment no later than the testing time indicated on your CBT confirmation. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late to a test appointment, you may not be admitted. If you arrive late and are not admitted, you will be considered absent and will not receive a refund or credit of any kind. You will need to register and pay again to test on a future date.

Absentee Policy

If you are absent from a test from which you did not properly withdraw (see "Changing Your Registration"), you will not be entitled to any refund. You will need to register and pay again to test on a future date.

Emergency circumstances. If you are absent from a test administration because of an emergency circumstance (illness, injury, hospitalization, or death in the immediate family), you may be eligible to receive a fee voucher that you may use to register for a future test date. To request a voucher, you must mail or fax to Evaluation Systems a letter describing the emergency situation. Include written documentation, such as a dated newspaper obituary or a dated letter signed by a professional licensed to diagnose or treat the emergency condition (e.g., physician), on that person's professional letterhead. Documentation from a medical professional must specifically excuse you from testing on the date of the test. Documentation containing electronic signatures will not be accepted.

The letter and required documentation must be received at Evaluation Systems within 30 calendar days after the missed test date.

A response to your request will be sent to you within two weeks after the missed test date, or two weeks after your request is received, whichever is later. If your request for a fee voucher is granted, the fee voucher you receive will be in the amount of the test fee(s) you paid for the missed test appointment.

Test Cancellation Policy

In the event that it becomes necessary to close a test center due to severe weather conditions or a natural disaster (e.g., flood, fire), Pearson VUE will notify examinees by email and include instructions to reschedule your test appointment.

If you miss a test appointment that has not been officially canceled due to a test center closing, you will be considered absent and will not receive a refund or credit of any kind. Contact Pearson VUE at (800) 989-8532 if you have any concerns or questions on the day of the test.
