The registration processing time is four weeks from the time your payment is processed. You will be notified by e-mail once you are registered. Your exam registration is valid for six months. Please note that many states impose their own eligibility deadlines that may be less than six months. When completing your registration form, please be aware that your name must match the name listed on your legal ID (driver’s license or passport). When you register for the first time, you are required to submit a transcript showing conferral of your degree in counseling or a related field. This should be included with your registration form and fee. If you have had a name change, you may be required to submit legal documentation. If you need to reregister, you are not required to send another transcript. Special Accommodations: 1. If you have special accommodation requests, you are required to submit supporting documentation from a licensed physician, psychologist or psychiatrist that includes the diagnosis and specific requests. 2. The signed documentation must be on official letterhead and may not be more than five years old. 3. Along with the documentation, please include a Special Accommodation Request Form found on the last page of the candidate handbook. 4. If you are requesting extra time or permission to bring a translation dictionary because English is your second language (ESL), and you studied in English, please send documentation from your graduate program showing that you received special accommodations due to ESL while in school. If you studied in another language, you will need to submit an international degree equivalency. See www.nbcc.org/Student/ International. 5. Candidates approved for extra time due to ESL must pay an additional fee of $60 to receive this accommodation. To reschedule your exam, contact Pearson VUE at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. There is a $50 fee to reschedule within seven days of your appointment. You cannot reschedule less than 24 hours prior to your appointment. After you schedule your exam, Pearson VUE will send you a confirmation e-mail listing your exam date, your exam time, the address and telephone number of the test center, and directions to the test center.
