COURTESY ACCOMMODATIONS:

If you have a temporary, physical condition (e.g., broken limb, advanced pregnancy) that does not rise to the level of a functional disability, CASLI will work with you and the Test Site to make arrangements to address your needs. You must submit a written request to CASLI, accompanied by a letter from a qualified healthcare professional documenting the physical limitation, no later than 2 weeks prior to your exam date. If a timely request has not been received and granted by CASLI, the Test Site is under no obligation to accommodate your request on the day of your exam. Requests for courtesy accommodations should be directed to testing@casli.org.

RESCHEDULING

All exam appointment rescheduling is handled by the test administrator.

There may be a rescheduling fee if a candidate changes a testing appointment. The NIC Interview and Performance Exam cannot be rescheduled within three (3) business days of the scheduled exam appointment. If the candidate does not reschedule at least three (3) business days prior to the exam appointment and does not show up for the exam, it will be considered a missed appointment. This forfeits the candidate’s exam and all related exam fees. The candidate would then need to register and pay for the exam again in order to sit for it. Please note the only exception to this rescheduling policy is a documented, excusable emergency situation as described in the “Cancellations and Missed Appointments” section.

INCLEMENT WEATHER CONDITIONS

Test sites may be closed or may experience delays during severe weather, natural disasters, or other emergencies. Exam appointments that the test site cancels under such circumstances may be rescheduled at no cost. Contact Comira at the number provided for rescheduling information.

If the test site is open and you do not arrive on time, it will be considered a missed appointment and forfeit your exam and all related fees. You would then be required to register and pay for the exam again in order to take the exam.

 

CANCELLATIONS AND MISSED APPOINTMENTS

Candidates who miss their scheduled exam appointment, arrive fifteen (15) minutes or more later, or need to cancel their exam appointment after the deadline due to an excusable emergency situation should notify the Comira immediately and then must contact CASLI at testing@casli.org or (571) 527-1463 with notification within 3 business days following the documented emergency (or the first available opportunity if the nature of the emergency prevents them from contacting CASLI) to be considered for a cost-free rescheduled exam appointment. Excusable emergency situations include:

  • The death of an immediate family member
  • Accident, illness, or hospitalization of self or an immediate family member (verified by a doctor)
  • A natural disaster

Documentation of the emergency must be submitted by the candidate to the CASLI Certification Department by postal mail to: CASLI, Attn: Certification Dept, 333 Commerce Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 or by email to testing@casli.org.

If CASLI verifies that the emergency qualifies, the candidate may reschedule an exam appointment, cost-free, within one year of the approval.

If the candidate cancels the scheduled exam appointment after the deadline or misses the scheduled exam appointment for any reason other than an excusable emergency situation that is approved by CASLI, it will be considered a missed appointment and forfeit the exam and all related fees. The candidate would then be required to register and pay for the exam again in order to take the exam in the future.
