Registering and Scheduling Your Exam
What to Bring to the Testing Center
To complete the necessary sign-in procedures, it is recommended that you arrive at the test center at least 30 minutes before your scheduled exam time. Please be prepared to show one (1) form of personal ID. The ID must be current (not expired) and include your signature and photo. For security reasons, some test centers may also require you to provide a fingerprint and/or take your digital photo upon arrival.
You will not be allowed to take any personal items with you into the testing room. This includes all purses, bags, books, notes, PDAs, cell phones, pagers, watches, wallets, hats, gloves and coats. Some testing centers have lockers available to store your personal items during your test. For the GR2/T3 exam, you will be allowed to bring your TI BAII calculator into the testing room. Basic calculators and scratch paper will be available at the testing center for any exam.
