Register for Exams

When you’re ready to sign up for the exam you want to take, check the academic calendar and choose the term in which you want to take your exam. You don’t have to be enrolled in a degree program to register for UExcel exams.

Use the link on individual exam pages to start the registration process. You can pay for your exam by credit card or payment plan. You’ll receive an Authorization to Test (ATT) letter in your MyExcelsior message center within 48 hours with instructions about how to schedule your exam and what you need to bring with you when you take it.

Pearson charges a test administration fee when you schedule your appointment to test. Additional fees apply for phone transactions (scheduling, rescheduling, and canceling). Visit the Pearson website for the current fee structure.

Questions? Call 888-647-2388 (Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm ET)


To avoid forfeiting your full exam fee, you must provide a 24-hour cancellation notice to Pearson VUE. You may request a 50% refund as indicated in the Exam Registration and Information Guide.

If you wish to change your exam, you can request the switch through your MyExcelsior or fax your written, signed request to 518-464-8777, attention: Test Administration.


Reasonable accommodations will be provided for computer-delivered testing. Visit our accommodation page to submit a request.

If you’ve been approved for special accommodations, please contact the Test Administration office at 888-647-2388 to speak with a representative who will process the registration for you.
