FTCE Testing Costs

FTCE General Knowledge $130 for first attempt; $150 for any subsequent attempt

Planning Your FTCE Test Registration

In some instances, how you register for the FTCE can affect both your fees and testing experience.

The costs for the FTCE General Knowledge Test differ slightly from the FTCE subject area exams. For the FTCE General Knowledge Test, the testing fee is $130 for your first attempt and $150 for any subsequent attempts. It costs the same, no matter how many subject areas you intend to complete, so for most test-takers, it makes sense to attempt all four subtests in one sitting.

Each subject area of the exam is individually timed: you receive 50 minutes for the Essay subtest, 40 minutes for the ELS subtest, 55 minutes for the Reading subtest, and 1 hour and 40 minutes for the Mathematics subtest. However, note that if you take all four subtests in a single session, you receive a 15-minute break. We recommend taking a full-length practice test and timing yourself on each subtest to get a better idea of your individual pace before registering.

For the FTCE Elementary Education K-6 (060) Test, the testing fee is $150 for your first-attempt and includes all four subtests. Any subsequent attempts are charged at $37.50 per subtest. The test is comprised of four subject area subtests: Language Arts and Reading, Social Science, Science, and Mathematics. Each subtest is made up of 50-60 multiple choice questions, and you are given between 1 hour 5 minutes and 1 hour 10 minutes to complete each subtest. If you take three or more subtests in a single session, you receive a 15-minute break.

Before you register for your exam, read our free FTCE Study Guide to learn more about the content of each subtest. We also recommend taking an FTCE Practice Test and timing yourself on each subtest to determine your pace. This will help you decide which testing scenario is best for you.
