Coronavirus (COVID-19) GACE® Testing Postponements


Updated March 25, 2020

Ongoing updates regarding important information about future testing and test taker support will be added to this page. Please bookmark it.

Test Postponements and Rescheduling

Due to health and safety concerns for test takers and test center staff stemming from the coronavirus outbreak, the GACE® program will offer the following options to all test takers:

  • waived fees for test rescheduling
  • extended submission dates for the Spring 2020 administration for PASL, if cooperating K–12 schools are closed for an extended period

Test Center Closures

If test centers in specific cities or states close, information about when they will reopen and how candidates can reschedule their test session will be posted here.

Please note that turnaround time for score reports and service levels in our call center may be impacted. If impacts occur, we will post a notification of the impact here.

All Prometric® test centers will be closed until April 16. If you are scheduled to test at a Prometric test center, visit the Prometric test center closures page for updates.

Non-Prometric managed test centers are determining their availability on a case-by-case basis. These closures may affect your ability to test at your preferred location. Changes are happening almost daily. Please continue to check this page for additional updates. To check on your specific test center availability, use our GACE test center closures search tool.

Note: You will be contacted directly by ETS if your test center is closed or your registration is impacted for any reason.

Disability Accommodation Requests

Please submit all GACE disability accommodation requests and supporting documents electronically via your GACE account to ensure that we are able to receive your requests. Due to limited staffing, there could be delays in processing accommodation requests.
