Policy 24: Exam Rescheduling

testing
  1. Testing centers operated by NICET:

    Examinations which are scheduled for administration at published NICET test sessions may be rescheduled or canceled, as follows:
    1. Conditions which require no additional fee are:
      1. The examinee determines as unacceptable the "make up" test date which NICET scheduled after a test is canceled due to unacceptable conditions at the test site, weather conditions, proctor unavailability, etc.
      2. The examinee determines as unacceptable a future test date which NICET assigns because the examinee did not indicate a second choice on the application and the first choice was at capacity when the application was processed.
      3. The examinee decides to reschedule for some personal reason (medical emergency, family emergency, work emergency, etc.) and notifies NICET in writing no later than 19 days before the scheduled test date.
      When these conditions are met, the rescheduled exam must be taken within 8 months of the initially-scheduled test date or all fees paid are forfeited.
       
    2. Conditions which require payment of a rescheduling fee are:
      1. The examinee decides to reschedule for some personal reason (medical emergency, family emergency, work emergency, etc.) and notifies NICET in writing during the period from 18 days before the test date to 5 business days after the test date.
         
    3. Conditions which require payment of another full exam fee and a new application are:
      1. The applicant contacts NICET to CANCEL a scheduled exam.
      2. The applicant is a "NO-SHOW" on the scheduled test date and does not contact NICET within five (5) business days after the test date.
      3. The applicant decides to reschedule for some personal reason (medical emergency, family emergency, work emergency, etc.) but does not properly follow through with rescheduling his/her exam within 8 months of the initially scheduled test date.
         
      An exam which is rescheduled by the examinee for personal reasons (i.e., A.3. and B.1. above) cannot be rescheduled more than two times.
       
  2. Testing centers operated by test-delivery organizations other than NICET:

    Candidates will be informed of a range of dates within which the test must be taken. Scheduling the test within the given date range is the responsibility of the candidate. Candidates will be informed of procedures and fees for rescheduling a test to a different center or date within the original date range, or for cancelling/rescheduling after the cancellation deadline set by the test administration organization.

    Scheduling or rescheduling a test outside of the original range of dates will require a rescheduling fee and will result in a new range of dates. A request for a new date range must be received in writing by NICET not more than 30 days after the end of the original date range. The new date range must begin not more than eight months after the beginning of the original date range. A test may not be rescheduled to a new date range more than two times.
