The NBCE will not accept change requests after published withdrawal deadlines.
The NBCE will accept your written request to withdraw and issue a partial refund if your request is received by the exam withdrawal deadline. The NBCE will issue refunds approximately two weeks after receiving your withdrawal request. (See form below).

Emergency Cancellation Policy
In the event of an emergency or administrative irregularity, the NBCE reserves the right to make adjustments in exam administration procedures, to withhold the reporting of scores, and/or to order the re-administration of an examination.
An emergency or administrative irregularity might include, but is not limited to, any natural disaster (hurricane, flood, tornado, earthquake, fire, etc.), power failure, technology malfunction, or other facility breakdown, which, in the opinion of the NBCE, could affect the validity of examination scores.
