Step Five: ERB Testing

We require a test report from the Educational Records Bureau for applicants to Grade 2 and higher by January 20, 2017. For more information, and to schedule a test date, go to the bureau’s online registration portal or call 212-672-9800. Reports are not ready until 6 to 8 weeks after the test date, so it is a good idea to schedule the appointment for early fall.
