After approval, if you experience an urgent event that prevents you from sitting for the Certifying exam, notify ABOG immediately (call 214.871.1619 and request to speak to an exam specialist).
If the request is made prior to September 15, 2020, and if the review committee agrees that the request is due to circumstances beyond the control of the candidate, the exam portion of the fee may be refunded minus a $400 administrative processing fee. The application fee and late fees are not refundable.
The review committee cannot refund exam fees after September 15, 2020. The review committee won't consider any requests that they don't deem to be an emergency (i.e., natural disaster, serious accident, illness, etc.).
