MTTC Test Dates


Finding Information for MTTC Tests

The official MTTC website has an information page for each MTTC test option. Individuals can select the page for the test they need to take. Once they do this, they will have access to some general information about the exam, including links for information about the test sites and dates for taking computer-based tests.

Test Fee Information

Each test registration has a base $129 fee. These fees must be paid using a debit or credit card carrying the Visa or MasterCard logo. Other cards cannot be accepted. Your registration is valid for a full year after the date it is issued. If you do not schedule a test appointment within that year, your registration will expire without refund.

Test Dates

The MTTC exam page provides links to the Pearson VUE website. These links lead to apps designed to help individuals locate test sites and test times. The person can provide an address, town name or ZIP code on the test site app to see a list of places where tests are offered close to their chosen location. On the app for testing times the person must select their test, choose up to 3 test locations where they prefer to take their test and then select a date from a calendar. Once the person has selected the 3 test sites, they are taken to a page where they can select a test site and view dates when there is space to take that exam at that site. This information is presented on a calendar. Any dates that are not struck out have space available.

The person can click on their preferred date on the calendar, and the site will display a list of the start times they can choose from for that test site and date. This only indicates where and when space is currently available; this app cannot be used to schedule an exam. Individuals must log into their account on the MTTC website and follow the steps to register for and schedule an exam to secure space at their chosen test place and time.

The information page for each MTTC exam lists the dates the tests will be given. For example, in the 2020-2021 school year many language exams are offered in the following testing windows:

September 7 - September 20, 2020 November 2 - November 15, 2020 January 25 - February 7, 2021
March 22 - April 4, 2021 May 17 - May 30, 2021 July 12 - July 25, 2021

Individuals should check all registration deadline information and score report dates via the link on the test's page on the MTTC website to confirm. Typically, individuals are expected to register 45 days before the exam and could expect to receive their test scores about 4 weeks after their exam date.

Test Rescheduling

Up until 24 hours before a person has a test scheduled they can change their test time, date or location. This service is free of charge, and individuals only need to log into their MTTC account and follow the steps for rescheduling.
