What Happens if You Can’t Take the Exam?
Extension Policy and Fees
Any candidate can be granted one (1) extension for the next consecutive 90 day window after the extension request is received (NOT following the last day of the original testing window) and provided that all the following apply:
request is made in writing with a non-refundable extension fee of $100 and postmarked before the final day of the assigned testing window;
candidate’s window of testing time has not expired;
candidate has not made an appointment with AMP to take the examination or if an appointment has been made, it was cancelled no later than four business days prior to the scheduled testing
Candidates who are approved to extend their 90 day window will not be allowed subsequently to withdraw or request a deferral from the examination process.
Deferral Policy and Fees
Candidates who are unable to participate in the examination for which they are scheduled and who are beyond the time frame for rescheduling or cancellation of the appointment may request an additional 90 day window of time to take the examination. The request must be in writing. This deferral is available on a one time only basis and must be approved by NCC. Candidates who have requested an extension cannot withdraw and are not eligible for a deferral.
Deferral candidates must submit a new application and any appropriate documentation and an additional nonrefundable $125 fee. Eligibility must be re-established. Candidates who request a deferral are not eligible for any refund. Deferral requests must be received within 30 days from the last day of the original 90 day window. Deferral candidates will be assigned to the next available 90 day window for testing.
Only the applicant/candidate can withdraw from the examination process. Withdrawing candidates will receive a refund of $135. All withdrawal requests must be made in writing, signed and dated and sent to NCC provided that all the following apply:
the candidate has not made an appointment to take the exam at an AMP center, or
if the candidate has made an appointment with AMP, it must be cancelled no later than four days prior to the scheduled testing.
The request must be postmarked no later than one month prior to the end of the candidate’s 90 day test window. For example, if the test window concludes on September 20, 2009, the last day for a withdrawal request to be accepted would be August 20, 2009.
No refund will be considered after the candidate has taken an examination.
New candidate substitutions CANNOT BE MADE for ineligible, withdrawn or extension/deferral candidates.
