    Hi Leah,

    The launch date of ARE 5.0 is November 1, 2016.  You will be able to schedule 5.0 divisions then.  If you have 4.0 eligibilities, you will need to transition to 5.0 then.  Otherwise, you will need to request 5.0 eligibilities in order to schedule.

    So if I am eligible for 4.0 right now, but I have not taken any exams yet, do I have to ask for eligibility for 5.0 before I can see them on the schedule? Most of November appears to be booked right now, so would like to be able to schedule it now rather than wait until the 1st and have the schedule booked further.

    The exams are not available until November 1, 2016, so you will have to wait until November 1 then self-transition to 5.0 in order to schedule 5.0 exams.

    How long will the 'self-transition' take?

    I'm also interested in signing up for an exam right when November 1 hits the clock.

    Is there an anticipated first exam date? I ask, to know whether on November 1, I can sign up for an exam on November 2 or will have to wait until later in the month.

    ^^ Agreed, was hoping we could sign up now, just have dates before November 1st not be available to sign up on...

    The self-transition is immediate.  You will be able to start scheduling as soon as you transition to 5.0.  The availability of exam dates is based on the test center location you select.  You will be able to schedule for the first open seat in the test center you choose.

    Hi,

    I know it's nitty gritty, but what 'time' can we expect to sign up on November 1? (Is it going to be midnight PST, EST, etc.)

     

    Thanks! : )

    While we don't have an exact time yet, ARE 5.0 will launch before noon Eastern time on November 1.
