Registering for CEOE
The Certification Examinations for Oklahoma Educators are necessary exams to become a teacher in the state of Oklahoma. You will register for your exam through the CEOE website, but this process also requires paying some fees and selecting testing centers. Let's go through this step-by-step.
Step 1: Creating an Account
The first thing you need to do is create an account through the CEOE website. This account is an important portal through which you will register and receive information about your exam.
Step 2: Find Your Test
There are multiple exams offered through the CEOE, so you will need to determine which ones are necessary for you.
|Initial license/certification|| Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET)|
Oklahoma Professional Teaching Examination (OPTE)
Appropriate Oklahoma Subject Area Test (OSAT)
|Paraprofessional Title I Credential||OGET|
|Career Development Program for Paraprofessionals to be Certified Teachers||OGET, OPTE, and OSAT|
|Alternative placement programs and/or Troops to Teachers certifications||OGET, OPTE, and OSAT|
|Four-Year-Olds and Younger certificate||OGET, OSAT, and Early Childhood Education test|
|Additional certifications/endorsements||Appropriate OSAT|
Step 3: Register and Pay Your Fees
Once you have figures out which tests you need, you can log onto your CEOE account and officially register for the exam. First, you'll have to pay your fees. These vary by test. All fees must be paid by debit/credit card (VISA or MasterCard only).
There is a $30 registration fee for the OGET and OSAT, which is good for the entire year. If you are only taking the OPTE, you don't have to pay this fee. All exams also require a $25 CBT fee.
Each exam also has its own specific test fee. The OGET fee is $65. The OPTE fee is $140. OSAT exams (including Early Childhood Education) carry a fee of $80.
To complete your registration, you will need to select your test date and facility. CEOE exams are completed at Pearson VUE testing centers, which are located all across Oklahoma. Their website or the CEOE website can help you find the one closest to you. Tests are available all throughout the year, Monday-Saturday. There are some holidays when the testing centers are closed, so check with Pearson VUE if your desired testing date is near a major holiday.
One of the final steps you'll have to complete is clicking that you agree to abide by all test rules and policies. These can be found on the CEOE website.
Changing Your Registration
If something happens and you need to change your registration, there are ways to do this. Log onto you CEOE account and click the tab that says ''Reschedule''. If you complete this more than 24 hours before the scheduled exam, you will not have to pay a fee to reschedule the exam.
If you wish to change you the type of exam you are taking, you will have to first withdraw your original application. As long as you do this more than 24 hours before the exam, you will receive a full refund. You can then submit a new registration for the desired exam.
