CPCE (comps) in the Spring of 2024

Practicum and pre-practicum students planning to take the CPCE (comps) in the spring 2024 need to register by January 20th to be authorized for testing in the spring testing window (March 11-22, 2024).  We don't currently have a summer testing window and pre-practicum students should take the CPCE in the March testing window.  
You will complete the CPCE registration survey and await Dr. Barrow's further instructions in late-January.  Go to>Comprehensive Exam>CPCE Registration Interest
which will take you to a Google survey you complete to tell Dr. Barrow how you would like to test (at home, at NCCU, or at a Pearson Vue site near you).  For more information please visit
