Visit the Start an Application page and click the category that applies to you to complete and submit the online application form and supporting documents. If you are applying to re-write the exam, do not submit a new application. Email the College and you will be provided with further instructions.

Applicants who meet the application requirements will receive notification by email of their eligibility to write the exam and must complete these additional requirements in order to register for the exam:

  1. Complete and submit the Exam Registration Form and pay the exam fee.
  2. Register for the online exam on the Meazure Platform.


You can write the exam in English or French. You must indicate your preferred language on the Exam Registration Form. Any request to change your preferred language must be made in writing and received by the College at least four weeks before the exam date. You cannot change your preferred language on the day of the exam.

Testing accommodations

Applicants who require accommodations must complete the accommodation application form. All requests must be supported by documentation. For a medical accommodation, please have the appropriate health professional complete the disability-related needs form. Please submit your complete request by mail or via email by the deadline noted above.


You can defer writing the exam to the next available exam date for any reason, including not being ready to write. Requests for deferral must be emailed to the College at least 10 business days before the exam. The exam fee will be credited in full toward the next exam sitting for deferral requests received by the deadline. Applicants who request a deferral after the deadline will be required to pay the full cost of the exam even though they will not be writing.


You can withdraw from writing the exam if you do not want to defer to the next available exam date. If you withdraw, you will receive a 50 per cent refund of the exam fee if the withdrawal occurs at least 15 calendar days before the exam date. If the withdrawal occurs within 15 calendar days of the exam date, you will not be refunded any amount.

A partial refund may be issued to applicants who withdraw within 15 calendar days of the exam date with a documented illness or on compassionate grounds. View the Fee Refund Policy.

No shows

Applicants who do not show up for their scheduled appointment on examination day will forfeit the full exam fee

Exam rebooking

Applicants who are not able to complete the exam for any reason (e.g., technical issues with their computer system, missed appointment) on the exam day will have an option to rebook their exam for the following day at an additional cost. Applicants who choose not to rebook their exam will forfeit the full exam fee. These applicants must also pay the full exam fee again should they decide to write the exam in the future.

Changes to name and contact information

If you have legally changed your name, you must notify the College immediately via email and submit proof of the name change. If your contact information (email address, telephone number, home address, etc.) has changed, you must also notify the College. The College communicates information on the exam via email. Please report these changes by sending an email to the College.
