CIA Exam Reschedule and Cancellation Procedure

cia exam rescheduleAccountants are busy people. It is all too common to have important family and work commitment coming up and you have to arrange a CIA exam reschedule.

How can you do it? Let’s take a look.

CIA Exam Reschedule Fees and Procedure

You can change an appointment online at the Pearson VUE website, or by calling a Pearson VUE representative. The rescheduling fee is $50.

The change must be made no later than 48 hours prior to the original appointment. Otherwise, it is considered a no-show and you’ll have to pay the exam fees again.

Please note also that once you reschedule the exam, the 180 days start to count and you have to reschedule the next exam in this period.

CIA Exam Cancellation

If you want to cancel the exam altogether, you must personally contact Pearson VUE customer service. Please refer to the local phone numbers in this website here.
