  • Schedule A Test

    If you have not yet been approved by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying to sit for the upcoming examination, please visit http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/ to proceed with applying for eligibility to sit for the examination(s) with the New York State Board. If you have already been approved by the New York State Board for Surveying to test during the upcoming administration, to schedule for the examination for which you have been already approved by the New York State Board, you must submit the appropriate Scheduling Form and payment by the postmark deadline. Scheduling Forms must be postmarked by September 1st to be accepted for the October administration.

    IMPORTANT:  In order to be admitted into the examination, please be sure that your first and last name written on this scheduling form matches your first and last name EXACTLY as it appears on your current, government-issued photo ID with your date of birth and signature.

    Castle will make every attempt, within reason, to seat candidates at the test site selected, though the selected test site is NOT guaranteed. Candidates will only be admitted to the test site for which they have been scheduled by Castle.  Candidates who have completed the scheduling process and are deemed eligible by the New York State Education Department will receive an admission letter in the mail approximately two (2) weeks prior to the exam date.

    Refund Requests:
    Please note that all fees paid to Castle in relation to this examination application are nonrefundable, unless the written cancellation request is received at Castle at least 30 days prior to the examination date; you may email requests to testing@castleworldwide.com. Fees are nontransferable from administration to administration. A $40.00 processing fee will be incurred for all examination cancellations. Cancellation requests received after the noted cancellation deadline will not be honored and failure to appear for your examination will result in the forfeiture of your scheduling fee. Candidates are responsible to verify that Castle has received the requests by the appropriate deadline.
