Testing Information

When registering for any Praxis exam, you must indicate that your scores should be sent to UCA. Select the option with code 6012  to send scores to the UCA Office of Candidate Services.  UCA’s Speech Language Pathology program (SLP/AUD) also uses the Praxis exams. Don’t mistakenly send your scores to that program.  Be sure you select the proper code.

Praxis requirements vary from state to state.  Be sure to register for the tests required for Arkansas. Click here for the Arkansas Praxis requirements.
