If you have applied for the PMP exam, made the payment, and now you want your money back, you can do so.
The PMP exam refund policy says:
“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, you can clearly see that if you have not scheduled the exam yet, and you have more than 30 days until your PMP eligibility expiry, you can get your money back. However, the PMI will deduct a 100 USD fee from the amount.
Moreover, in the case of a failed audit you will also get your money back with a deduction of 100 USD.
However, in the following cases you will not get the refund, and your entire fee will be forfeited:
- If your one-year eligibility period has expired, and you have not scheduled the exam.
- If you scheduled the exam and did not attend it, and you also couldn’t provide a proper reason to cancel/reschedule the exam to Prometric.
- If you failed the PMP exam.
You can get your money back minus 100 USD if you want your refund at least 30 days before the expiry of your eligibility period. If you failed the exam, did not show up for the exam, or your eligibility period is expired, you are not entitled to any refund. However, in the case of extenuating circumstances you can receive a full refund.
