You can purchase** exam vouchers online through EagleNET by selecting the following:

Please remember: students will need to purchase an exam voucher for EACH exam they intend to attempt. For example, if a student plans to take both the Word Core and Excel Core exams, TWO exam vouchers are required: one voucher for each test. Vouchers may be purchased the day of an exam.

Exam vouchers are only good for one attempt; thus, if an exam is failed an additional exam voucher must be purchased for each additional attempt. Also, the testing software requires students wait at least 24 hours to attempt the same exam after one failed attempt and 48 hours after two failed attempts--NO EXCEPTIONS.
