Transferring to Another Testing Cycle*
A request to transfer to the next testing cycle may be made without charge before the application deadline of 21 March for the spring testing cycle or 24 September for the autumn testing cycle.
Requests to transfer to the next testing cycle after the application deadline but before the end of the testing window will incur a transfer fee of $250. Transfers will be allowed up to 10 days after the end of the testing window (10 June for spring and 10 December for autumn). After this period transfers will not be allowed and applicants will be required to pay a new application fee at full price.
