21 NCAC 58A .0401          SCHEDULING EXAMINATIONS

(a)  An applicant who is required and qualified to take the

licensing examination shall be provided a notice of examination eligibility

that shall be valid for a period of 180 days and for a single administration of

the licensing examination.  Upon receipt of the notice of examination

eligibility, the applicant shall contact the Commission's authorized testing

service to pay for and schedule the examination in accordance with procedures

established by the testing service.  The testing service will schedule

applicants for examination by computer at their choice of one of the testing

locations and will notify applicants of the time and place of their

examinations.

(b)  An applicant may postpone a scheduled examination

provided the applicant makes the request for postponement directly to the

Commission's authorized testing service in accordance with procedures

established by the testing service.  An applicant's examination shall not be

postponed beyond the 180 day period allowed for taking the examination without

first refiling another complete application with the Commission.  A request to

postpone a scheduled licensing examination without complying with the

procedures for re-applying for examination described in Rule .0403 of this Section

shall be granted only once unless the applicant satisfies the requirements for

obtaining an excused absence stated in Paragraph (c) of this Rule.

(c)  An applicant may be granted an excused absence from a

scheduled examination if the applicant provides evidence that the absence was

the direct result of an emergency situation or condition which was beyond the

applicant's control and which could not have been reasonably foreseen by the

applicant.  A request for an excused absence must be promptly made in writing

and must be supported by documentation verifying the reason for the absence.  The

request must be submitted directly to the testing service in accordance with

procedures established by the testing service.  A request for an excused

absence from an examination shall be denied if the applicant cannot be

rescheduled and examined prior to expiration of the 180 day period allowed for

taking the examination without first refiling another complete application with

the Commission.
