Dates and Fees

July 16, 2020 Qualifying Exam


Exam Fees if Paid Between
September 17 - October 18, 2019 $1,500
October 19 - November 18, 2019 $1,860
November 19 - December 18, 2019 $2,340

The Qualifying Exam fee consists of:

  • cost of the application process ($800)
  • fee to cover the exam cost ($700)


The portion of the fee that covers the cost of the application process will not be refunded or credited against a future examination. If you're denied entrance to the exam on the basis of the information supplied with the application, only the fee portion that covers the exam cost will be refunded.


After approval, if you experience an event that prevents you from sitting for the Qualifying Exam, notify ABOG immediately (call 214.871.1619 and request to speak to an exam specialist).


The ABOG review committee will determine if the request is due to circumstances beyond your control. If the committee agrees that the circumstances warrant a refund, the fee may be refunded minus a $400 processing fee. The review committee won't consider any request that they don't deem to be an emergency (i.e., natural disaster, serious accident, illness, etc.).
