  • The deadline for submission of requests and all necessary documentation for alternative testing arrangements is the regular registration deadline. Because of space, staff, and time constraints, there can be no assurance that requests received after this deadline can be accommodated.
  • Your registration must be completed by 5:00 p.m. eastern time on the registration deadline for the period.

Please allow three business days from the score report date before accessing MDE certification files using your score(s).
