Q: How many times are we allowed to reschedule a CPA Exam section? I already have rescheduled it once. Can I reschedule it again? I still have 31 days before my exam date.
-Rescheduled in Raleigh
A: As someone who rescheduled more than their fair share of CPA Exam sections, you can certainly say that I've ‘been around the block' in this regard. I could probably buy a nice vacation just with the rescheduling fees I paid – including dropping $95 to abort mission the night before my exam.
You can reschedule your exam as many times as you want, but there will be fees involved and a Notice to Schedule time limit to consider, so beware.
If your CPA Exam section is 30+ days away, the fee to reschedule is $0.
If your CPA Exam section is 5-29 days away, the fee to reschedule is $35.00
If your CPA Exam section is less than 5 days away, the fee to reschedule varies:
Auditing and Attestation (AUD): $111.60
Business Environment and Concepts (BEC): $62.00
Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR): $99.20
Regulation (REG): $74.40
Technically, you are not allowed to reschedule an exam less than 24 hours prior to your exam.
However, I personally rescheduled less than 12 hours prior to one of my exams, but this tactic is very risky and I don't recommend doing it.

REMEMBER: Make sure your reschedule date is within the date limit of your CPA Exam Notice to Schedule (NTS).
