Examination Policies

Exam Cancellation, No Show, Refund and Transfer:

Exam Cancellation:

Acupuncture Canada reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any of its exams and to change the dates and venues. Registered students will receive a full refund or may choose to re-schedule to another exam at no extra cost to them.


No Refund for “No Show”:

There will be no refunds for “no show” by the student on the dates of the Written Exam or Practical Exam.


Student Cancellations:

If students want to cancel registration in an exam, they must do so at least three weeks before the exam date. Students will receive a 50% rebate on the registration fee paid if more than three weeks’ notice is given to cancel.

If less than three weeks’ notice is given to cancel the exam, registration fees are not refunded.

If less than three weeks’ notice is given to cancel, and Acupuncture Canada is able to fill the spot with another student from a waiting list, then a partial refund (50% rebate) will be given. But with less than three weeks’ notice, a partial refund will only be given if your place in the exam can be filled by another student on the waiting list. Otherwise, registration fees are forfeited.

To cancel registration in an exam, please contact the Acupuncture Canada office at 416-752-3988. You will also have to login to the Acupuncture Canada website and access your examination list, and cancel your registration online.


Exam Transfers:

Should a student be unable to attend the exam for which they are registered, and wish to transfer to an upcoming exam, written notice must be given to Acupuncture Canada at least three weeks prior to the exam. There will be an administration fee of $150.00 + GST/HST as applicable, per exam. Transfers are only applicable within a two-year time span. If less than three weeks’ notice to transfer is given, an administrative fee of $250.00 + GST/HST as applicable will be charged.



A student who becomes ill and is therefore unable to attend all or part of an exam is required to forward a note from his/her physician within 48 hours following the exam in which he/she was registered. That student will be transferred to the next available exam in their region with no transfer fee.


Exam Appeal Process:

Acupuncture Canada has a formal appeals process for both the written and practical examinations. Candidates who wish to appeal their exam results must file their appeal within 21 days of the exam results letter. A copy of the Appeals Process may be obtained from the Acupuncture Canada office.
