Two Textbook Edition Policy

Some CIP and GIE courses and their examinations may have two textbook editions (published dates). For a listing of the textbook editions available for each CIP or GIE course, please visit the Textbooks, Student Resource Guides and Addenda.

Once a new textbook edition has been released, examinations will be based on the new textbook edition and students will be automatically booked for that edition based on the course registration. 

Exams based on the previous textbook will remain available for three consecutive examination sessions to accommodate deferrals, rewrites, and students taking continued tuition. In these cases, the student must select the appropriate textbook edition prior to the day of the scheduled examination. Students will not be able to select the textbook edition on the day of the examination.

The student will be notified via the following:
Order confirmation email
Online member account
Reminder emails after the examination entry deadline is closed

If a student is notified to select their textbook edition and does not do so, the student will be given the examination based on the newest textbook edition and will be required to attempt that exam.

A $100.00 rescheduling fee will be applicable for any examinations that are required to be rescheduled if textbook edition selection is not completed prior to taking the exam.

It is the responsibility of each student to obtain any course or text revisions and ensure they are using the correct textbook edition for their course and examination.
