TESTING WINDOWS and APPLICATION DEADLINES
The "testing window" is the time period during which the WCET exam is offered. There are two testing windows annually. Candidates may test on any date during the testing window, depending upon availability at the testing centers. Each testing window has a separate application period as noted above.

Organizations or employers may sponsor candidates for the examination. Candidates who are being sponsored by an employer will receive a promotional code from their sponsor. Candidates should enter this promotional code (and credit card information if applicable) in the payment section of the application.
Examination fees are due at the time of application submission. Applicants may pay by VISA, MasterCard, or American Express. That is the only type of payment accepted.
SPECIAL ACCOMODATION REQUEST
IEEE ComSoc will, to the best of its ability, accommodate candidates with disabilities who need special arrangements to take the examination. Auxiliary aids and services will be provided except where these may fundamentally alter the examination or result in an undue burden.
PearsonVUE may be unable to comply with special accommodation requests made by candidates taking the examination where local operating conditions or local laws and customs render such requests unlawful, impossible, or economically unfeasible to perform.
A special accommodation request must be made by the candidate at the time of application by marking the appropriate box on the online application. Candidates who request special accommodations must also submit the Special Testing Accommodation Request form and the Documentation of Disability-Related Needs by Qualified Professional form.
Candidates must mail, email or fax special accommodation information to ComSoc within ten (10) business days of the date they submit the application. Candidates who do not provide the requested information within the specified time frame will forfeit all fees.
