Update as of August 13, 2021: September 2021 Examination Scheduling Update

Scheduling is underway for most September 2021 IBCLC examination candidates. IBLCE is continuing to send Examination Authorisation Emails regularly throughout August to the remainder of the approved September candidates. 

To date, 81% of candidates who have received their authorisation have successfully scheduled their examination appointment. You can follow scheduling progress at the September 2021 IBCLC Examination Candidate Dashboard.

If you have not yet received your Examination Authorisation Email, please know we are working to send it to everyone so all can schedule an appointment.Thank you for noting that you cannot schedule your examination appointment before receiving your Examination Authorisation Email, as the testing vendor will not be able to schedule your appointment without this information.

As you prepare for your examination, please note a few important upcoming deadlines:

Submit any necessary name change requests by August 27, 2021.
Your name on file with IBLCE and the name on the two forms of ID you present on examination day must match. If you need to change your name on file with IBLCE to match your IDs, please contact the IBLCE location that serves you by the deadline.

Request a cancellation for a partial refund or full refund due to extraordinary circumstances by September 1, 2021.
