NABP does not allow you to change your jurisdiction. If you have entered an incorrect jurisdiction or need to make a change, you will need to cancel your application and submit a new one with the correct jurisdiction. You will be required to submit a new, nonrefundable $100 fee. You will not receive a refund for the original application fee.
If you need to cancel your application, you may do so through your e-Profile (just click “Cancel Application”). You will not receive a refund for the application fee after a cancellation.
Canceling your exam is a 2-step process.
You may receive a refund for your examination fee if the eligibility period has not expired. You will not receive a refund for the $100 eligibility application fee and your application will be closed. After canceling your exam, you must wait 10 business days before submitting a new application for another NAPLEX or MPJE in the same jurisdiction.
You can cancel or reschedule your examination appointment via your Pearson VUE web account, or by calling Pearson VUE customer service. You must cancel or reschedule your appointment at least 2 business days prior to your scheduled appointment. For example, if you are scheduled to test at 9 am Monday, you must call by 9 am on the previous Thursday to cancel or reschedule. There is a non-refundable $50 fee, paid directly to Pearson VUE, to reschedule each appointment. Your appointment is not canceled or rescheduled until you receive a confirmation from Pearson VUE. If you cancel without the required notice, you will forfeit your testing fee. Canceled exams do not count against your attempt limits.
