COVID-19 Updates

The NBCE is actively monitoring Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) concerns for all test sites. As COVID-19 continues to spread within the United States and around the world, our first priority is the safety of testing candidates and our staff who administer the exams. We balance this with our sense of responsibility to facilitate your journey towards licensure, and an understanding of the negative impact exam cancellations can have on our examinees. The NBCE does not want to hinder your ability to progress towards licensure, so we will continue to work towards administering the scheduled exams. Unfortunately, the reality of our current situation may require us to cancel an exam with minimal notice. Before leaving for your scheduled exam, we recommend following the links below to access information about closures or other exam specific updates. Please note, if you plan to test at a location that is outside your local community, it is your responsibility to use extreme caution and judgement before deciding to travel to a test administration. Please do not travel if you are sick and follow local guidelines regarding travel and social distancing protocols.

A list of general guidance and links to additional resources regarding travel can be found here: NBCE Travel Advisory Notice

Important Information Regarding Rescheduling the Part III & PHT Exams

  • Our partnership with chiropractic colleges allows us the ability to utilize paper-based testing (PBT) format instead of computer-based testing (CBT) for this one Part III and PHT administration, which will allow the necessary amount of seating to accommodate the combined March and July administrations into one large PBT-only administration on July 18 & 19 at available chiropractic college campuses.

  • We will not be utilizing Prometric Testing Centers for this July administration only.

  • If you cannot attend an exam administration due to travel restrictions, disagreement with social distancing protocols, test site policy, or health reasons, you may cancel or reschedule your appointment to a future administration by emailing us at support@nbce.org with your request to withdraw from the exam and whether you want to apply your fees to a future administration or receive a refund.
