Beginning with the July/August 2016 administration of the VTNE, the following changes will be in effect.

  • The cost for the VTNE is now $310 per application.

  • Candidates must take the exam during the window which is selected on the VTNE application. Eligibility CANNOT be transferred to another exam window.

  • Candidates will need to follow the cancellation/refund instructions in the Candidate Handbook and submit a new online VTNE application/fee to change exam windows.

  • Refunds may be requested within the guidelines of the Candidate Handbook. The deadline to cancel and request a partial refund is the VTNE online application/refund deadline, (i.e. February 15, June 15, or October 15) for the selected exam window. Refund requests submitted after the deadline will not be honored.
