School Code Assigned by NCCAOM   ▼   

The NCCAOM School Code List was developed by our staff for the purpose of tracking, by institution and exam registration with Pearson VUE. You will be asked for your school code when registering with Pearson VUE for the NCCAOM examinations. An identifying numeric value is assigned to schools which have multiple applicants apply to NCCAOM through any of the eligibility routes. In order to ensure timely and accurate processing of applications, please refer to the school list attached when completing section I in the Application for Certification. The school code is the alpha-numeric (ABC-12345) value listed after the school name.
