3. Scantron will send approved candidates a Notice to Schedule (NTS) via email, which will provide a username, password, and any additional information needed to schedule the testing appointment. Approved candidates will select a testing session from a list of available testing centers by geographic location, test date, and available seating. You must submit your test scheduling request at least four business days prior to your preferred test date. Most testing centers will have morning and afternoon testing sessions available. Scantron will do its best to accommodate the requested test site and date. Seats are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, based on test center availability, so it is to your advantage to schedule your test appointment as soon as you receive your NTS.
You will be notified of the exact test location, date, and time via a confirmation email. You must bring your printed email confirmation with you to the test site.
A new testing handbook is currently under review and will be posted as soon as possible.
