    I'm a CSU Pueblo Student. Where do I go to take my exam?

    When you register for your exam, you will be asked to choose a location.  Currently, Colorado Springs is the closest location.  CSU Pueblo testing center is attempting to reopen. 

    Any ETS approved testing center can be used to take the exam.  Please make sure that scores are reported to CDE.


    What happens if I don't pass?

    ETS requires a 21-day waiting period before re-taking an exam.  You may retake the exams as many times as needed in order to pass.  Taking exams early can ease anxiety so students do not feel rushed to pass the semester before student teaching. 

    Passing scores are required for student teachers to student teach in Colorado. 


    Test Anxiety

    If you are experiencing any type of test anxiety and/or feel physically ill due to exams, please be sure to reach out for help.  The counseling center at CSU Pueblo is here to help!  Experienced professionals can provide tips and strategies to help you.
