Test Dates

Test dates and registration deadlines for the 2014-2015 school year are shown in the tables below.  Online registration will begin mid-August.

Important Reminders
  • Tests are normally taken on a Saturday morning. Students whose religion prohibits testing on Saturday may choose a non-Saturday test date when they register.
  • Test dates are available throughout the school year. Scores from all dates now are considered for the NUMATS Award Ceremony but may not be considered by other organizations depending on the date of the organization's ceremony.
  • Students should register as early as possible to increase the likelihood that they will be assigned to their first- or second-choice test center. Test centers are assigned by the testing agencies, and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  If seats are not available at the test center(s) you choose, the testing agency will assign you to the nearest available test center.
