10:15-18-11. Requests for extension of time
(a) A candidate may apply for an extension of the time limits set by this Subchapter if the candidate is called to active military service or becomes incapacitated as a result of illness or injury.
(b) The candidate shall file a written request with the Board for an extension after receiving the call to active military service and shall furnish a copy of the orders to active military service or furnish written evidence of incapacitation or injury.
(c) Within sixty (60) calendar days after the candidate is discharged from active military service, the candidate shall furnish the Board with copies of the discharge orders. The candidate shall then be required to take one (1) test section for which the candidate is eligible within the next six (6) months following the candidate's discharge from military service or rehabilitation from incapacitation or injury.
(d) The candidate shall file a written request with the Board for an extension should serious illness or injury incapacitate the candidate to the extent that the illness or injury prevents the candidate from examination testing. The candidate shall furnish a copy of an original and signed diagnosis directly related to the injury or illness from a licensed, qualified physician. The professional must provide a precise statement setting forth the determination that the illness or injury precludes the candidate from testing and the time period involved. The Board will follow federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines.
