What do I do if I need to change my test, test center, test date or test session?

Requests to change your test, test date, test center or test session can be done online or by phone. Change requests for PBT tests can also be done by completing and submitting a Change Request form. Change Request forms are available in the Download Library for the test you are taking. Fees, payment policies and completion and submission instructions are on the form.

A test date can only be changed to a date within the current testing year. If you are affiliated with an Educator Preparation Program, you must be preapproved for the new test you are planning to take.


  • Changes for continuously offered CAT tests can be made up to two days before the test date.
  • Changes for all limited-administration tests can be made up to the end of the registration period.
  • If you are registered for a CAT test, you cannot use the Change Request form. You must make your request online or by phone.
  • For CAT tests, a $20 processing fee is charged up to the deadline for making changes. See Fees for Tests and Related Services for payment policies.
