Important New Information about the MPRE

NCBE wants all prospective MPRE candidates to know about some important changes for the 2020 MPRE:

  1. The test will be administered on Thursday, March 12, and Friday, March 13, 2020. The MPRE is no longer administered during a single two-hour period on Saturday. Instead, students will select one of several two-hour appointment times on one of the two weekday test dates. There will also be weekday administrations for the August and October MPRE administrations.
  2. The test will be administered on a computer at a Pearson VUE testing center. This is a new location compared to past administrations. Students will select a testing center when they schedule their test appointment.
  3. The registration deadline is February 12, 2020. There is no late registration deadline. The earlier students register with NCBE and schedule their appointment with Pearson VUE, the more likely they will be to get an appointment with their desired location, date, and test time.
  4. If students plan to test in March and will be seeking accommodations under the ADA, they should apply for accommodations as soon as possible to allow us time to review their application. Those applying for accommodations should check their NCBE File Cabinets frequently for updates on their accommodations applications.

Any questions should be directed to NCBE at 608.280.8550 or by email to mpreregistration [at] ncbex [dot] org (for questions about registration) or mpre [dot] ada [at] ncbex [dot] org (for questions about accommodations).
