So, you have applied for the PMP exam, you’ve set your test date, and then life snuck up on you and you can no longer attend. Naturally, you want your money back. You need to know the PMP exam fee refund policy.
PMP Exam Fee Refund Policy
The PMP exam fee refund policy is as follows:
“To obtain a refund for the PMP credential, you must make a request to PMI at least 30 days before the exam eligibility expiration date. PMI will retain a processing fee of 100 USD if you have not yet scheduled or taken the examination. Also, you can receive a refund, less a US $100 processing fee, if you fail to meet audit requirements.”
Therefore, if you have not yet scheduled the exam and you have over 30 days until your PMP eligibility expires, you can get your money back. However, the PMI will deduct a 100 USD fee.
If you failed the exam, did not show, or your eligibility period has expired, you will not get a refund. However, in the case of extenuating circumstances, you can receive a full refund.
You will get your money back with a deduction of 100 USD if you failed the audit.
You will not get your money back in the following cases:
- Your one-year eligibility period has expired and you have not scheduled the exam.
- You scheduled the exam but did not attend it, and you were unable to provide a proper reason to cancel or reschedule.
- You failed the PMP exam.
Please review the PMP exam fee refund policy in the PMP Handbook for updated information.
If you have scheduled the exam, a different rule applies. Please read the following blog post on rescheduling or canceling the PMP exam.
