You may follow the written directions below or watch the video tutorial on registering for Praxis exams (opens new window).

  1. Go to the ETS website (opens new window) and create an online user account.
  2. Click Register for a Test to start the registration process.
  3. On Step 1. Find Your Test, click the EPP Test Requirements button. This will display all available Praxis exams.
  4. Locate and select the exam you desire to take. Note: You can use the Ctrl-F feature to search for an exam number.
  5. Select your test date and location.
  6. Select WGU (Recipient Code #4944) as an Official Score Recipient. If you request for your results to be sent to WGU, you do not need to send in any score reports to WGU afterward. 
    • Note: If you will license in your state through reciprocity, by first obtaining a Utah teaching license, you should add the Utah State Office of Education (Recipient Code #R8375) as a score recipient.
    • Additional Note: If you are registering for the Praxis CORE 5751, you do not need to send a Praxis CORE score report to Utah. 
  7. Complete the rest of the registration process (i.e. pay the registration fee and obtain proof of registration and payment for your records).


Note: WGU strongly recommends obtaining a copy of all exam score reports for your personal records.
