Examination Results Procedures

Emailing of Scores:

A notification to view your examination score post login will be emailed to you within four (4) 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: DO NOT submit a new application fee to retake the test prior to receiving your examination score.


If you are unsuccessful in passing the examination, information on re-testing will be included with your examination score. DO NOT submit an application fee to retake the examination until you receive notification of your examination score 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/ABHES 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 Submitted to a Third Party**:

A Third Party Verification Request link will be made available on the online examinee score report providing instructions for requesting verification of certification to be submitted to a third party, such as a State licensing board or employer. Third party verification requests may also be made by going to this link www.ascp.org/verification. Do not place a third party verification request until successful completion of the examination and receipt of your score report. There is a $16 service fee (payable by credit card) associated with requesting a third party verification.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: For NAACLS/ABHES/CAAHEP accredited candidates you will not be able to complete Verification of BOC Certification until after you have received your online score report with your Certification Number.
