  • How To Register

    If you have not yet been approved by the New York State Board for Massage Therapy 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 with the New York State Board. If you have already been approved by the New York State Board for Massage Therapy to test during the upcoming administration, to schedule for the examination, you must submit the appropriate scheduling request and payment by the administration deadline. The deadline for scheduling is November 1st for the January administration and June 1st for the August administration. You may schedule and submit your fee online at http://www.castleworldwide.com/NYSEDonline.


    IMPORTANT: In order to be admitted to the examination, please be sure that your first and last name in your scheduling request matches your first and last name EXACTLY as it appears on your current, government-issued photo ID with your 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 their online scheduling account 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 (testing@castleworldwide.com) at least 30 days prior to the examination date. Fees are also nontransferable from administraton 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 for verifying that Castle has received the requests by the appropriate deadline.
