Diplomate Application — Withdrawals and Refunds


  • If written notification of withdrawal from an accepted candidate is received at the ABCP Executive Office at least one month prior to the exam date, $600 will be refunded.

  • An accepted candidate whose written notification of withdrawal is received by the ABCP Executive Office less than one month prior to the exam is not entitled to a refund, except when the withdrawal is the result of a documented emergency.

The accepted candidate may apply for an emergency late withdrawal refund of $300 by submitting proper documentation of the emergency to the ABCP Executive Office.


In the unlikely event the ABCP Board of Directors determines, at its sole discretion, not to accept an application for examination from a candidate, $600 will be refunded to the candidate.
