Register Early!

We require candidates to test according to a schedule based on their acceptance. If you need to retake a test, you must wait 30 days before retaking the same test. The final date to test is May 27, 2017 for the late June 2017 start.


Tests are computer based and can be scheduled Monday through Saturday at one of over 4,400 Pearson VUE locations worldwide. The total registration fee for all 4 sub tests of the Test of Academic Proficiency is $113. If taken separately (for example if you need to retake one part of the test), the registration for each sub test is $68. The registration fee for most content area tests is $122.


Send AUSL a copy of the unofficial score report that you receive upon exiting the testing center. Final scores are reported 2-4 weeks after the test date; also send AUSL a copy as soon as you receive them. (It is not necessary to request that a score report be sent to AUSL or our university partners when you register for your tests.)
