How do I know if I am qualified to take an exam? What happens if I am disqualified?

The minimum qualifications for each examination are stated in the examination announcement. You are strongly encouraged to review these qualifications, prior to submitting your application, to determine if you meet them. Failure to meet these qualifications at the time of examination will result in the disqualification of your application. Applications submitted without proper payment submitted incompletely, or without the required documentation, certificates, licenses, diplomas, and/or transcripts, and forms may also be disqualified.

The application fee is non-refundable even if you are disqualified from taking an examination. However, if your application is rejected, you will be notified as to the reason and can appeal the decision by contacting this office.
