Scheduling Your Exam

Schedule through Pearson Vue below or contact a Pearson VUE agent at 1.866.998.2664. A confirmation letter will automatically be sent via email or mail after scheduling an appointment. If you do not receive confirmation, please contact a Pearson VUE agent.


  • CREATE AN ACCOUNT.  You will need to create a Pearson Vue account or sign in to schedule your appointment online. Creating an account allows you to schedule/reschedule exam appointments, view testing history, and modify personal information. You will also have access to a variety of resources including a tutorial and practice exam, test center locator, and more. In order to ensure that exam results are linked to the correct student profile, it may take up to 24 hours to confirm a username and password after creating an account. 
  • ONVUE. You may use the online, proctored version for each of the Capstone Exams. If you scheduled an exam through Pearson Vue, and would like to change to OnVUE, you must first CANCEL your exam through Pearson Vue in order to see the online option.  
  • PERSONAL COMPUTERS.  Per Pearson Vue's OnVUE policy, learners should not use work computers because the firewalls interfere with the Online Proctoring setting. You will need to ensure that you are not logged into VPN and that there are no firewalls preventing access. Please take your OnVUE exam using a different device or offsite.
