The exam may be taken at any time after approval of your application and payment of all fees; however, we recommend it as the last requirement in the process. This exam is available online using our Special Exam Option and must be proctored by an employee from a university or public library who is responsible for the security and integrity of the exam. Please allow 10 days - two weeks advance notice for staff to make the arrangements.
All fees are non-refundable and must be in US funds and paid by check, money order, or credit card.
The examination is offered in English only and is based on the Blueprint of Knowledge Statements. The exam consists of 50 multiple-choice items and the number of exam items from a blueprint area correspond to the number of hours in that rubric; the smaller the rubric, the fewer questions will be in the exam from that content area. There is a 2-hour time limit for the exam.
