University of Maryland University College Computer-Based Testing (UMUC CBT)
The University of Maryland University College (UMUC) contracted with Pearson VUE for the administration of Computer-Based Testing (CBT) format for UMUC’s final examination periods.
Important Things to Consider
- Exam Fee: Pearson VUE charges a fee of $70 per exam that must be paid at the time of scheduling. This fee is refundable up to one business day before the scheduled exam time.
- Late Arrival Policy: You will not be allowed to take your exam if you arrive more than 30 minutes after your scheduled start time. This will result in you forfeiting your exam fee.
- Prior to scheduling with Pearson VUE: you must go to MyUMUC and visit the “Undergrad Online Exam Reg” link and then proceed to the Alternate Site Registration page. You will then be able to Select Pearson VUE as the Alternative Site.
- Registration: The Pearson VUE registration period will begin approximately 7–10 days after the beginning of the UMUC registration period. Please see the schedule for registration dates. You will need your email confirmation number that you receive when you register the exam for an Alternative Site, to complete your registration with Pearson VUE.
