Important Update for March MPRE Candidates


NCBE has been monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely. At this time, the MPRE scheduled for March 12–13 at Pearson VUE testing centers is proceeding as scheduled. If there is any change in your testing center schedule, you will receive an email from Pearson VUE. Testing centers have implemented additional precautionary hygienic measures, including providing hand sanitizer and increasing cleaning and disinfecting regimens between all test appointments. Pearson VUE is posting related updates to its website.

Candidates unable to test on March 12 or 13 due to COVID-19 concerns, such as those who have recently traveled to affected areas, those self-isolating, or those under state, local, or national directive not to travel, may contact NCBE to request a test fee voucher that can be used to cover the test fee for the August 2020 or October 2020 MPRE.

IMPORTANT: Voucher requests must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. CDT on Saturday, March 14, 2020. To request a voucher, visit the Contact page on the NCBE website, select MPRE Registration as the topic from the dropdown menu, and submit a message with your request, including your name and NCBE Number.

Health and safety are of paramount importance to us. We encourage everyone to follow CDCWHO, and local health official guidelines on safety precautions and restrictions.
