Late Arrivals, Rescheduling and Cancellations
If you arrive within 30 minutes of the exam start time and have a valid reason for being late, you have the option to write the exam. You will only have the remaining time allotted for the exam session to complete your exam. For example, if you are writing a 3-hour exam and arrive 30 minutes late, you will have 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete your exam.
If you feel you cannot complete your exam in the reduced time, you have the option to reschedule. If you choose to reschedule, a reschedule fee will be charged.
If you arrive more than 30 minutes after the exam start time, you do not have the option to write the exam and will have to reschedule.
Please contact the EOCP office for rescheduling or cancellation requests. A fee will be applied to those requests made less than 8 days prior to your scheduled exam date.
