Florida Teacher Certification Examinations

The Florida Department of Education has eliminated all paper/pencil Florida Teacher Certification (FTCE) testing statewide. 

FTCE exams are now only administered at Pearson Vue computer-based testing sites.

Official FTCE Test Scores

Students will receive an unofficial score on the FTCE tests the day of computer testing. 

NWFSC must receive official scores from the testing agency. Official scores are received approximately 30 days after the test date. Unofficial scores cannot be used for admission or graduation purposes. When registering for FTCE exams, students should always request that official scores be sent to NWFSC. If they do not request that NWFSC receive their scores, we will not get them. If the NWFSC Testing Office has to order your official test scores, it takes up to 3 months to get them. Failure to request official scores be sent directly to NWFSC could delay admission to the program or delay graduation from the program.
