Transferring Exam Administrations

You may transfer your application to another administration through your MyNBCE account. Administrative fees apply; you may pay by credit card when you submit your request.

You must observe published deadlines.

Exam Withdrawal

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).

Exam Withdrawal Form (PDF file)

The NBCE will not accept withdrawal requests after the published deadline. You must submit a completely new application with correct fees when you apply at a later date.

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.
