If more than 24 hours before the test, you can change the date or time for an additional booking deposit.  Like the original deposit this is non-refundable but will be put towards paying for the full price of the test (meaning, provided you take the test, you won’t end up paying anything additional).

The deposit is non-refundable.  Additionally, you will be charged the full price of the examination if notice is not received within 24 hours of the test that you are cancelling.

Polygraph examinations have a high rate of “no shows” due to various factors (cold feet, issues resolve themselves prior to the test, etc.)  To combat this issue many examiners require a deposit while some even require the full price be paid in advance.  If you are uncertain about your commitment to taking the test please be aware that the initial $100 of the full price is considered non-refundable.
