Exam Rescheduling and Refunds Policy
Candidates unable to sit for the CRC® Examination who have paid their exam fee and then subsequently wish to cancel their Exam Date may reschedule their exam or request an exam fee refund as follows:
- When cancelling an exam 2 or more days before their scheduled Exam Date, the Candidate may reschedule their exam for no additional fee or request an exam fee refund less a $50 processing fee. Note: to avoid a rescheduling or cancellation fee, the exam must be cancelled by 7pm Eastern Time two days prior to the scheduled Exam Date.
- When the Candidate does not cancel or reschedule their exam 2 days or more before their scheduled Exam Date, or when the Candidate does not show for their scheduled exam time, the Candidate may reschedule their exam after paying a $150 rescheduling fee or request an exam fee refund less a $150 cancellation fee.
It is the Candidate’s responsibility to know and understand the CRC® eligibility policy as stated in Section 3.1 of the Certified Retirement Counselor® (CRC®) Program Policies Manual and no refunds will be granted when a Candidate fails to meet the eligibility requirements.
When a Candidate must cancel an exam within 2 days of their scheduled Exam Date due to a medical emergency or other extenuating circumstance and is denied an opportunity to reschedule or a refund per the above policy, the Candidate may submit a written appeal with supporting documentation that clearly states the reasons for cancellation. The CRC® Appeals Committee will consider all appeals and respond to the Candidate in accordance with the appeals policy. The decision of the CRC® Appeals Committee will be final. Under no circumstances will the $150 rescheduling/cancellation fee be refundable.
