Notice to Schedule (NTS)

Exam Candidates

Once you pay the Payment Coupon (PC), NASBA will send the Notice to Schedule (NTS) via e-mail within 1-3 business days. The NTS reflects the exam sections you selected and paid for. It is required for entrance into the Prometric testing site. If you do not bring it, 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.
