Notice to Schedule (NTS)

If you do not bring the NTS in addition to the two acceptable forms of ID, you will be denied entrance.


The NTS is good for only six (6) months. If you do not take the selected section(s) listed by the expiration date, you must submit a Re-Exam application and pay the appropriate fees in order to continue the testing process.

Initial & Re-Exam Candidates

Once you receive the NASBA e-mail notification that your PC is ready for payment, log into your NASBA Gateway 2.0 account and pay the fee(s) due.  (The PC reflects the fees due to NASBA for the exam sections you selected on the ILBOE exam application.)  Within three (3) business days of payment, you should receive an e-mail notification from NASBA that your NTS is ready for printing.

Please be aware that Prometric accepts printed, faxed or electronic NTS copies for entrance into the Prometric testing site. Candidates may take a photo of the NTS and present it on their phone as long as Prometric staff can see & read all of the information.

Notice to Schedule Not Received

If you recently paid the PC but you have not yet received the NTS or it is misplaced, please check your spam/junk folder, reprint the NTS or contact NASBA at 866-696-2722.
