Alternative Testing Arrangements


Monday Testing

Monday paper-based (PBT) testing will be arranged only if

  • you have religious convictions that prevent you from testing on Saturday; or
  • you are a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and have duties that prevent you from testing on Saturday.

Monday PBT test administrations are held on the Monday following the regular PBT administration. To register, you must submit the following by mail:

  • a completed Monday Testing registration form (PDF)
  • correct fees
  • a letter signed by your cleric on letterhead stationery confirming your affiliation with a recognized religious body whose convictions prevent you from testing on Saturday
  • a copy of your military duties

Online and phone registration are not available for Monday testing. When completing your Monday Testing registration form (PDF), leave the test center code number and test center name blank. Fill in the city and state where you wish to test. You will be assigned to the closest available test center. Registration forms must be received by the late registration deadline.

If you are registered for Monday testing, you cannot reschedule online; you may only reschedule using the Change Request form. A Change Request form is available in the download library for each program. These requests must be received by the late registration deadline.

NOTE: You cannot test on a Saturday and then take the same test on the following Monday.
