Reschedule or Cancel Your Appointment

If you need to reschedule or cancel your qualification exam or Regulatory Element Continuing Education (CE) session appointment, you must do so a minimum of 10 business days in advance to avoid any fees. Appointments rescheduled or cancelled within 10 business days will incur a fee.

Remember, FINRA does not have a hardship policy if you’re unable to take an exam. If you miss your enrollment period for any reason, the cost of the exam will not be refunded or applied to another examination.

Inclement Weather Policy


If severe weather or a natural disaster makes it difficult or unsafe to travel to the exam center, the exam or CE session may be delayed or cancelled.

  • Individuals scheduled with Pearson Vue can call (800) 274-0456 for details about delays and cancellations during severe weather.

  • Individuals scheduled with Prometric can visit the Prometric Site Status page or call (800) 578-6273 for a list of centers closed due to inclement weather.

Fees


Three to 10 Business Day Cancellation/Reschedule Fee:  If you cancel or reschedule an appointment within three to 10 business days of your scheduled appointment, you will be assessed a cancellation/reschedule fee as outlined above. At the time you cancel an appointment, the scheduled exam or CE session vendor (Pearson VUE or Prometrics) will collect the fee.

Late Cancellation/Reschedule Fee (Within Two Business Days):  If you reschedule or cancel an appointment within two business days of a scheduled appointment, or fail to show up, you will be assessed a fee equal to the fee of the exam or session. FINRA will charge this fee to your firm or, if you registered using the Form U10, you will forfeit the pre-paid fee. You then must open a new enrollment window—and pay the associated exam or session fee—before scheduling a new appointment.
