Rescheduling, Missed Appointments, Cancellations, and Refunds

All testing costs paid directly to the University Testing Center (UTC) are non-refundable and non-transferable. Appointments may be rescheduled up to 72 hours in advance of your test date and time for a cost of $20. Missed appointments will require full repayment of the test cost, this includes if you cancel, or arrive more than 15-minutes late. If you scheduled your test directly through an exam sponsor, such as ETS, Pearson, Prometric or Kryterion, please contact that exam sponsor regarding these policies.
