If you require an accommodation as an exception to any of the above items, you must submit a written request To PCAT Customer Relations providing the appropriate documentation explaining the need for this accommodation.
Do not bring any prohibited items to the test center.
You will NOT have access to any purses, cell phones, or backpacks during the exam. These items must be stored in a designated secure area provided at the Pearson VUE Test Center. All electronic devices MUST be turned off while in the secure area. If your cell phone rings or makes any noise while in the secure area, your test will be invalidated and your testing fees will not be refunded. During the rest break, accessing a personal item, such as an item needed to take to a restroom, is allowed. However, if you access any other prohibited item from the secure area (cell phone, backpack, study notes, etc.), your test will be invalidated and your testing fees will not be refunded. If you access, check, or turn on your cell phone at any time during your testing session (including during your break), your test will be invalidated and your testing fees will not be refunded.
IF YOU ARE FOUND TO HAVE VIOLATED THE PROHIBITED ITEMS POLICY IN ANY WAY, YOUR PCAT SCORES WILL BE INVALIDATED, NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED, AND YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO TRANSFER TO A DIFFERENT TESTING WINDOW.
Neither Pearson, its affiliated companies, agents, contractors, nor the Pearson VUE Test Centers assume responsibility for the theft, loss, or damage to any prohibited electronic device or other personal property brought into the Test Center or left in your car.
