Remote Testers: Once we submit your name to PSB, all the other steps will take place with the 3rd party companies (PSB and Pearson VUE). Wait for an email from PSB with instructions on how to schedule your exam through Pearson VUE. See the "Registration and Scheduling through PSB" section below for details.

REGISTRATION AND SCHEDULING THROUGH PSB (Remote Testers)
1. Pre-Registration for your exam must be made with PSB through your invitation to register email. You will be asked to confirm/provide your name, email, cell phone number, and the program applied for your prospective school. This information is used to set up your test and, if needed, to alert you of any change.
2. Once your pre-registration and payment has been received by PSB, PearsonVUE (PV) will send an authorization to test email inviting you to schedule your exam date, time, and location. This email should be received within one business day. PSB exams are provided through PVs web portal therefore PV must be aware of your intent to complete the PSB exam and requires that you create a test-taker account to schedule the exam in the PV system. The email will contain your PSB ID and a link to their website.
3. Once you receive the email, follow the link provided or go to http://www.pearsonvue.com and select “Test-Taker”, then “Schedule A Test” at the top left of the PV site. Then under “Ready, Set, Test” enter “PSB” and select “Psychological Services Bureau (PSB)” when displayed. On the next page choose “Create Account” under the PSB logo on the right. You will need to enter your name and PSB ID as they appear in the authorization to test email received from PV to create your account.
4. After you have created a PV account you will then be able to schedule your exam. If you are still signed into your PV account, you can skip to the next step. If you are not still signed in, please follow the steps above except this time choose “Sign In” under the PSB logo on the right.
