Exam Selection:
Individual Student Registration

If you are an individual student registering yourself, click on the “Register Myself” option. All exams you are eligible to register for based on your exam history should show up. If the exam you wish to register for is not available and you believe this to be an error, please contact registrar@alu-web.com.

In an effort to meet the needs of remote underwriters and unaffiliated students who wish to write ALU exams, the Academy offers a remote exam site program.

Group Registration

To reduce the time and effort required for company Educational Representatives who wish to enroll two or more students in ALU examinations being administered at a single company site, the Academy offers a multi-student registration option.

If you choose to coordinate exam registration for a group of students, click on the “Register Someone Else” option. A screen will pop up where you can either select an existing student to register or add a new student to register. Please note that you will only be able to select existing students that belong to the same company location as you. If there is an existing student who you wish to register that does not come up as an option, please contact registrar@alu-web.com.

Once you have selected an existing student or selected to add a new student, please either verify their existing information or enter all required information, and then click “Save & Close”. All exams that the student is eligible to register for based on their exam history should show up.
