A&M International Announces '99 ExCET Registration Guidelines, Test Dates

Texas A&M International University's College of Education has announced EXCET registration guidelines and test dates for 1999.

Only two other test dates will be held in 1999. The next testing date is April 17. Deadline for registration was March 12. The final 1999 testing date is June 12 with a registration deadline of May 28, 1999.

"To register for the ExCET, candidates must first obtain a barcode verifying their eligibility to take the test. Eligibility forms and ExCET registration bulletins may be obtained from the Certification Office, Killam Library 333," Dr. Sakta explained.

Sakta said that test candidates should make a concerted effort to visit the Certification Office one semester prior to the date they plan to take the ExCET test to review barcode eligibility requirements.

"Because of the rigid exam schedule and security guidelines, we require all candidates to submit needed forms to our office for final approval no later than 3 weeks before the registration deadline. All forms must be submitted no later than 10 working days before the registration deadline for review and approval of the barcode. Forms received after the 10-day cutoff deadline may not be reviewed for barcode eligibility for the desired test date.

Sakta reminds candidates for the exam that in order to be eligible for the test, candidates will be required to successfully complete designated capstone courses, ExCET review sessions and ExCET pretests.

For additional information, please contact Dr. Sakta at 956.326.2691 or visit offices located in the Killam Library, room 133.

University office hours are from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
