Step 2 CS Rescheduling Policy Allows Early Scheduling, Flexibility in Changing Testing Appointments

There are no Step 2 CS rescheduling fees for applicants who cancel scheduled testing appointments more than 14 days before the scheduled test date. Rescheduling fees do apply to applicants who cancel within 14 days of their scheduled test date and those who miss their scheduled test date without canceling.

This policy allows applicants registered for Step 2 CS to schedule their testing appointments early, while retaining the flexibility to reschedule at no cost, with a minimal period of notice. Applicants are strongly encouraged to register early and schedule testing appointments for the earliest possible date. If you have registered or plan to register for Step 2 CS, you should be familiar with the requirements and fees associated with rescheduling a Step 2 CS testing appointment.

  • If you cancel more than fourteen calendar days before (but not including) your scheduled test date, there is no fee to reschedule.
  • If you cancel during the fourteen-day period before (but not including) your scheduled test date, your fee will be $150 when you reschedule.
  • If you miss your scheduled testing appointment without canceling, your fee will be $400 when you reschedule.

Registered applicants can check which test dates are available to them at any time by accessing Step 2 CS Calendar and Scheduling. For complete information on Step 2 CS rescheduling policies, refer to Rescheduling in the ECFMG Information Booklet.
