Name and/or Address Changes

All applicants are responsible for immediately notifying BPS of any address change (including e-mail) or legal name change. Notification for admission to the examination, communication of test results, maintenance of certified status and renewal of certification depend on the Board having current information. An applicant or certificant who legally changes his or her name should immediately notify BPS.

Please be advised, that the name you submit with your application must match your current copy of government-issued photo identification with signature (e.g., driver’s license, passport, or government-issued identification card). Failure to provide BPS with a name matching your identification may result in a denial to enter the testing center on your scheduled examination date.

Please update your BPS account immediately with changes in contact information (mailing address, e-mail address, etc.) to ensure timely communication. Address and name changes made after the mailing of certificates will result in a charge for a duplicate certificate. Name changes that occur after submission of the application must be received no later than 30 days after the application deadline, in order to be updated in time for your examination appointment.
