ICD.D Examination Deferment and Re-Test Policy

Candidates scheduled for an ICD.D oral examination date may request deferment to a future examination date. A request for deferment will be considered only if the candidate has paid all outstanding fees, where space is available, and at the sole discretion of the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD).

The request must be made in writing to the ICD’s Manager, Graduations and Designations. Requests received more than 14 days prior to the date on which the candidate is currently scheduled for the oral examination shall be accommodated with no administration fee. 

Candidates who request a deferment less than 14 days prior to the date on which the candidate is currently scheduled for the oral examination or who fail to attend the scheduled examination date may request a new examination date, in which case an administration fee of $299 (plus applicable taxes) shall be required. Candidates that fail to attend their scheduled examination date can significantly affect their peers’ examination experience. 

Candidates who do not receive a passing grade on either the written or oral examination are entitled to re-take the test one additional time at no additional fee. Subsequent re-tests shall require a $125 administration fee (plus applicable taxes).
