Registration Information

You can register online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at the MTLE website. After setting up your account on the MTLE website, you will select the examinations you would like to take and pay the associated fees. You will then be able to schedule your exams and can view available test dates and times at the testing center you selected.

If you are registering to take the MTLE with accomodations, you will need to fax your documentation and request for alternative testing arrangements form to Pearson Evaluation Systems. If you do not have access to a fax machine, the School of Education Student Services Office (EB A117) can assist you. You will register online, checking the box that indicates you are requesting to test with accomodations. Once both your online registration and faxed documentation are received, you will be notified by email of the decision in your case. At that time you will receive information regarding scheduling your exam.

Note: Admission tickets will NOT be issued for computer-based tests. Candidates are only required to bring an acceptable form of photo identification with them to the test site. Tickets for paper-based tests will be issued after you register and have been assigned a seat. You must bring this with you the day of your test. To get a copy of your admission ticket follow the instructions provided when you access your account.
