(A) EXAMINATION AND APPLICATION DEADLINE DATES: Applications with all supporting documents are to be received and meet all requirements no later than the deadline dates listed below. Applications that are still incomplete as of the deadline for withdrawals and transfers (approximately 65 days prior to the examination date) due to problems with supporting documentation and/or payment, will be transferred to a future MCCEE session. (Please refer to the 2005 Evaluating Examination Schedule for specific deadline dates.) A transfer fee of $200.00 CAD will be imposed. The application will be transferred to an undecided status and will remain incomplete until the deficiencies are resolved, the transfer fee is paid and confirmation of the new examination date and center is submitted using the Registration and Payment Form.
Examination Application Extended Deadline for repeaters
Date: Deadline: from previous MCCEE session only:
6 January 2005 9 September 2004 8 November 2004 (for repeaters from September 2004)
5 May 2005 6 January 2005 7 March 2005 (for repeaters from January 2005)
8 September 2005 5 May 2005 4 July 2005 (for repeaters from May 2005)
A candidate whose application is received after the closing date for a specified examination may request consideration as a LATE applicant. A late applicant who wishes to be considered for his/her first choice session may, if the application is complete, request such consideration up to approximately sixty-five (65) days prior to the examination date (please refer to the 2005 Evaluating Examination Schedule for specific dates). The late application fee of $500.00 CAD over and above the required examination fee must be submitted with the request, and the application MUST be complete. There will not be sufficient time to address incomplete issues. Also, it is important to note that late applications are submitted past the deadline to withdraw or transfer.
An extended application deadline is available for candidates who were not successful on the previous examination session only. The extended deadline will allow sufficient time for candidates to verify their pass or fail status on the MCC Website and apply for the next session if necessary. The late fee is not required in this instance only.
A complete or incomplete notification will be sent to candidates approximately two to five (2 to 5) weeks following receipt of the application. Where possible, notifications of an incomplete application are sent to candidates by e-mail as well as by mail. Ensuring to provide the MCC with a current, valid e-mail address will in turn ensure that we can communicate with a candidate quickly to advise of any discrepancies with respect to his/her application. Candidates may also verify the status of their application on the MCC Website at: http://www.mcc.ca/english/examinations/ evaluating_status.html.
Note: Starting in 2005, an administrative fee of $30.00 CAD will be imposed if an incomplete application is submitted, requiring the MCC to follow up with the candidate in order to complete the application, including payment issues. The application will remain incomplete until the deficiencies have been resolved and the administrative fee has been paid.
(B) ENTRANCE CARD: An Entrance Card and site information will be mailed to all accepted candidates approximately eight (8) weeks prior to the exam date. See the 2005 Evaluating Examination Schedule for planned date of Entrance Card mailing. Please ensure that MCC is notified of any change to your mailing address prior to this date using the online address change service (www.mcc.ca - select Examinations, then click on MCC Online) or in writing (by fax or mail) with a signature. This Entrance Card is the sole authority for admission to the specified examination center. It is not valid for any other examination session or center, or for the entrance of any other candidate. The Entrance Card must be signed by the candidate upon receipt. Further proof of identity (with photograph) may be required at time of registration on examination day. The Entrance Card is used to verify the identity of the candidate and must remain in open view on the desk throughout the examination. The Deputy Registrar of the exam center has the right to deny a candidate entry to the examination room if he/she is not satisfied with the identification provided.
(C) EXAMINATION CENTERS: Please refer to the 2005 Evaluating Examination Schedule for the examination centers operating for each MCCEE session in 2005. The centers also appear on the Registration and Payment Form. Please check the MCC Website for possible changes to the available centers.
