Exam Retake Information

Retake Applications

 

After you complete all of the steps on your retake application, your application will be pending until verified by board staff. Once the retake application is verified, you will then receive an email that your application is approved. Your retake letter will be uploaded into your Digital Wallet under the testing tab. This letter contains instructions on how to register with ASWB.

Please check your Certemy account to view the status of your retake application. If all steps are verified, please look in your digital wallet for your retake approval letter.
