Examination Results Procedures

Emailing of Scores:

A notification to view your examination score post login will be emailed to you two (2) business days after you have taken the examination provided all official transcripts verifying the appropriate degree have been received. It is your responsibility to keep your email address current. Update your email address in your record by logging on to the ASCP website and clicking on "Profiles and Settings." Failure to keep the Board of Certification informed of your current email address will result in non-receipt of your Score Report.

Note: Examination results cannot be released by telephone, fax or email to anyone. DO NOT submit a new application fee to retake the test prior to receiving your examination scores.

Score Report:

It is important that you retain the examination score report as this report will be the only document from the Board of Certification that will contain your Certification Number.


If you are unsuccessful in passing the examination, information on re-testing will be enclosed with your examination scores. DO NOT submit an application fee to retake the examination until you receive notification of your examination scores by email.

Maximum Number of Examination Attempts:

You are permitted to take the examination in any one particular category a total of five times under one route. If you are unsuccessful after five attempts, you are ineligible for further examination in that category under the same route.

Release of Scores to Program Officials:

If you completed a NAACLS or CAAHEP accredited program, your examination scores will be released to the officials of the program in which you were enrolled unless you instruct the ASCP Board of Certification by certified mail, no later than 10 days before your examination administration, to withhold such scores. Requests received after this time cannot be honored. Mail your request via certified mail to: ASCP Board of Certification, Certification Activities, 33 West Monroe Street, Suite 1600, Chicago, IL 60603.

Request for Examination Scores Mailed/Emailed to a Third Party:

Requests for submitting verification of certification or examination scores to a third party, such as a State licensing board or employer, must be ordered online by the examinee after successful completion of the examination. A link to the online verification of certification process is provided on the online examinee score report or by going to www.ascp.org/verification after successful completion of the examination. There is a $15 service fee (payable by credit card) for each 3rd party verification request. Verification requests may also be submitted in writing and mailed with a $15 check to: ASCP Board of Certification, 3462 Eagle Way, Chicago, IL 60678

Verification of Computer Examination:

If you wish to have your computer examination reviewed, you must notify our office in writing within 30 days from the date of receipt of scores. A $25.00 fee is required. The check or money order must be enclosed with your request. The ASCP Board of Certification does not release or disclose the content or answers for specific test items. Incorrect responses will not be reported when requesting a review.
