Is the combined Written exam simply a combination of the current single discipline written exams?
No. It is a new exam with its own test specifications. The single discipline exams are designed for candidates who have completed an NCOPE residency in that discipline. The combined exam is designed for candidates who have just graduated from a CAAHEP accredited master's program.
Once my application is accepted, how do I register for the exam?
We will email you registration information on how to register for a specific time, date and location with our testing provider, Prometric.

What if I register and then realize I can't take the exam that day?
You have thirty days prior to the exam date to cancel without penalty. If less than thirty days, you will incur a $55 fee.
If I applied for both disciplines during the same exam cycle, can I take all of my exams during the same day and/or cycle?
Yes, you are able to take more than one exam on the same day, space and time permitting.
How many times can I take the exam?
Once your initial application is approved, you are eligible to take the exam a maximum of four times within a three-year period. If you fail the exam four times or if your eligibility period has expired, you must reapply for eligibility. Please reference the ABC Practitioner Candidate Guide for more information.
