Rescheduling Your Exam

Rescheduling your NICET exam has never been easier, and in most cases, does not incur any additional fees. Additional fees may apply if rescheduling is attempted within 24 hours of the appointment time, the eligibility window expires, or there is less than 24 hours until the eligibility expires.

To reschedule your exam, follow these steps:

Login to your NICET account and click "Schedule" in the left side navigation.


Click “Schedule with Pearson VUE” for the exam that you want to reschedule.


Click on the exam name to view the appointment.


Click “Reschedule” on the right side of the screen.


Caution: Just like the original scheduling process, there are several screens, agreements, and confirmations. The process is not complete until you click the “Confirm Reschedule” button, see the notice “Your Appointment is Rescheduled”, and receive a confirmation email directly from Pearson Vue. Depending on the device or browser that you are using, this confirmation process may take two to three submittals. It is highly recommended that this process be done on a laptop/desktop computer.

Taking a screenshot of this process is not acceptable. Failure to complete the process and missing your appointment does incur a rescheduling fee.

You may also call Pearson VUE at 1-866-880-0048 to reschedule. However, significant wait times can occur.

Candidates who are testing using the online remote proctored (OnVue) option may reschedule their appointment date/time right up until their appointment without incurring additional fees. Just follow the same process as detailed above.

If you need to reschedule under the 24-hour mark, or after your eligibility window expires, email your request to test@nicet.org. Please provide your name as it appears in your candidate account and your NICET ID.
