Should you determine, no later than five business days prior to your scheduled exam appointment, that you are unable to test, you may request to be transferred to the next testing window (one time) for a fee of $100. You must first cancel your exam appointment with Prometric before requesting to be transferred (to cancel appointment, see below FAQ). Access your portal and request an exam transfer. If you did not schedule an exam appointment, you may request an exam transfer up until the last day of the testing window. A transfer request may be made one time per exam application.
If you are unable to test during the transferred exam window, all fees will be forfeited, except in the case of a medical or personal emergency. Supporting documentation must be provided.
