Notice to Schedule (NTS)

Exam Candidates

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

The NTS reflects the exam sections you selected and paid for in gateway 2.0.

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.

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

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