Applicants are allowed two (2) cancellations or “failures to appear” per application. However, a failure to appear without cancelling in advance will result in forfeiture of the examination fee (this includes the proctor fees in California and Florida) and an additional $60 fee.
Examination fees are refundable for the 1st cancellation. However, if the cancellation occurs less than seven (7) days before the examination date, a $60 fee will be assessed on the 1st cancellation.
For the 2nd cancellation, a $60 fee will apply regardless of when the examination is cancelled. If the cancellation occurs less than seven (7) days before the examination date, the examination fee (this includes the proctor fees in California and Florida) will be forfeited.
For a cancellation or "failure to appear" of a 3rd examination, the examination fee (this includes the proctor fees in California and Florida) will be forfeited and the application will be closed. The applicant will then have to re-apply and go through the application process again.
