    If you have already been approved by the New York State Board of Geology 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 will need to submit your scheduling request and correct fee by the administration deadline of July 9, 2018 in order to be scheduled for the next examination in October 2018 . You may schedule and submit your fee online at http://www.castleworldwide.com/NYSEDonline


    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 signature.


    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 their online scheduling account approximately two (2) weeks prior to the exam date.
