Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellations and Requests for Refunds

The cancellation deadline to receive a refund is always two weeks before a testing window opens.  You can not cancel and receive a refund after your approved testing window has begun.

Candidates who submit a cancellation request form to AFP by the appropriate deadline will be refunded a portion of the new applicant fee. The application fee ($211) and non-member differential fee ($395) are non-transferable and nonrefundable. Re-registration candidates who submit a cancellation request form to AFP by the appropriate deadline will receive a refund of the re-registration fee, minus a $100 processing fee and any “no-show” penalty fees that were previously assessed.

Please note that cancellations are intended for candidates who are no longer interested in taking the examination or will be putting off the examination for an unknown period of time. Once the cancellation form has been processed and the candidate receives a refund, they must re-submit the new applicant form and the appropriate fees, should they ever want to sit for the examination again. For candidates interested in moving their exam registration to the next testing window, please view the deferral or re-registration portions of this section.


"No-show" Penalty

This $90 fee applies to all candidates who fail to cancel an existing appointment with the Pearson VUE test center, regardless of whether they submit a written request to AFP to cancel, defer or transfer their exam registration. This fee also applies to candidates who miss their appointment, cancel too late or arrive late. Please select the "No-show" fee option on the Transfer Request Form to make payment.
