Purchasing Exam Vouchers for MOS Certification Testing

Each exam requires a voucher to be purchased via EagleNET before a student can take a MOS exam. Exam vouchers cost $50 each (a discount student rate) for current and prior BUED 376 students and $96 each (a discounted educational rate) for all other current EWU students. You can purchase** exam vouchers online through EagleNET by selecting the following:

1.     Student Tab

2.     Student Account

3.     Pay My Bill

4.     Select a Term: Current quarter (submit)

5.     Make a Payment

6.     Pay Bill or Optional Charges

7.     Testing Fees

8.     MS Office Test

9.     Add to Shopping

10.  Checkout

11.  Follow payment prompts

12.  Print voucher & bring to testing session with your EWU ID Card

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 2013 and Excel Core 2013 exams, TWO exam vouchers are required: one voucher for each test.

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.

Scheduling an Exam & More Information

For more information or to schedule an exam, please contact Leah Silvieus via email at lsilvieus@ewu.edu.

**All exam vouchers purchased between now and October 14, 2017, expire on October 15, 2017.
