Test Cancelations 



ACT Residual-MVSU

In the response to COVID-19 pandemic, ACT residual testing dates at MVSU have been cancelled until further notice.


Praxis (ETS)

Test Postponements and Rescheduling:

Due to health and safety concerns for test takers and test center staff stemming from the coronavirus outbreak, the Praxis® program will offer the following options to all test takers:

  • Waived fees for test rescheduling, if necessary
  • Extended submission dates for the Spring 2020 administration for the PPAT® assessment and PASL, if cooperating K–12 schools are closed for an extended time

ETS is working to make the rescheduling process as smooth as possible for test takers. Test centers do not need to be closed for test takers to reschedule their tests.

Please note that turnaround time for score reports and service levels in our call center may be impacted. If impacts occur, we will post a notification.

Test Center Closures:

If test centers in specific cities or states close, information about when they will reopen and how candidates can reschedule their test session will be posted.

Please note that turnaround time for score reports and service levels in our call center may be impacted. If impacts occur, we will post a notification of the impact here.

Note: You will be contacted directly by ETS if your test center is closed or your registration is impacted for any reason.
