Conditions which require no additional fee are:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
