Under special circumstances AFP may allow a deferral from the current testing window to the next testing window with no additional fee. Special circumstances must either immediately precede or coincide with the administration of the exam. All such circumstances must include supporting documentation, such as a doctor’s note. Approval of a deferral request is granted on a case-by-case basis. Deferrals are permitted only once per new application.
