You can register with Pearson Vue when ever you want. But be aware, Pearson Vue won't send your ATT until they get the go ahead from the BON you sent your application to. And that won't happen until after your school sends the paperwork to the BON. That usually occurs when you complete your final classes and grades are in.

You have to graduate and have your degree confirmed before your BON will allow PV to send your ATT. The BON is going to want your official transcripts, which usually takes about 3 weeks after graduation to get from most schools. Once you get those, you need to either walk them into the BON or send them (I recommend certified mail) to the BON then you should get your ATT in a matter of days.
