Tips for Submitting your Application:
  • You will receive a confirmation email once we process your application, which usually takes between 4 to 6 weeks weeks after receipt. Please refrain from making travel arrangements until you receive your confirmation letter.
  • Remember to select your three (3) Site/Exam Location choices. If your first choice is not available, we will register you based on your second and third choice. Keep in mind that if you select only one Site/Exam Location we might not be able to place you due to space. This may delay your application.
