Canceling an Exam

If you need to cancel your exam, please notify the ABA office in writing as soon as possible.

Effective Jan. 1, 2016, the fee is $1,000 to cancel an exam appointment. This fee must be mailed with the candidate's cancellation letter at least one week prior to the first day of the exam administration week to retain the fee for the next exam appointment.

A candidate who misses a scheduled exam appointment because of an unavoidable or catastrophic event must submit a written request with explanation and documentation of the event. To retain the exam fee for the next exam appointment, the ABA must receive the candidate's request and the cancellation fee no later than three days after the exam date. If a scheduled appointment is missed for a reason that does not represent an unavoidable or catastrophic event, the candidate will forfeit the exam fee.

A candidate who misses an exam appointment and does not cancel the scheduled appointment will forfeit the exam fee.
