Reschedules or Cancellations

Test takers can reschedule or cancel an exam on their own by logging into the Exam Center, clicking the Home tab in the blue bar, and scrolling down to manage their scheduled exams. Please do not email ISSP asking for us to reschedule or cancel your exam, unless you require support or assistance in doing so.

Once an exam is scheduled, candidates will be able to reschedule at no charge or cancel for a full refund as long as they do so at least 72 hours before an onsite exam or 24 hours before an online exam. Within 72/24 hours, a fee will apply to reschedule or cancel an exam.

If a candidate fails an exam, they must wait three (3) months in order to make another attempt. We recommend that candidates who fail take a look at our Education Partners’ Test Prep offerings or purchase a Study Guide.
 

Dragonfly Fund Sponsorship

Thanks to a generous grant from the Dragonfly Fund, ISSP is offering a reduced price of $100 on the ISSP-SA exam to those ISSP members who completed the ISSP Sustainability Certificate Training program in the past (please see the FAQ for a description of the difference between this educational program, which is no longer active, and the credentials now offered by ISSP Certification).

In order to be eligible for this discount, you must have completed the educational certificate program, be a current ISSP member, and plan to schedule the ISSP-SA exam before June 30, 2017. If you qualify, please reach out to certification@sustainabilityprofessionals.org for more information.
