All written requests, via email, to cancel/withdraw MUST be received in NBE’s office before the early registration deadline*. Any requests received after this deadline will not be processed.
Please Note: Candidates that submit an application during the late registration period* are NOT subject to a refund. Withdrawal or cancellation will result in forfeiture of ALL exam fees.
Candidates may defer, for any reason, their 2018 examination application and fee paid to the 2019 examination registration, as a one-time courtesy, if requests and payments are received before 12:00 PM (Noon) EST on Monday, June 4, 2018 for an additional fee of $200.00. Any requests received after this deadline, without medical documentation, will not be considered or processed.
