Although it has never happened, circumstances may arise affecting the ability for the chapter to conduct the test. Appropriate water for UPT, UT and NA evaluations is one of those. 60 Days prior to a UPT or UT test, the Chapter Executive Council will confirm the ability to successfully conduct water tests. If the conditions are deemed inappropriate, those test formats will be cancelled, all test applicants will be notified and 100% of all test entry fees will be refunded. 30 days prior to an NA test, the Chapter Executive Council will confirm the ability to successfully conduct water tests. If the conditions are deemed inappropriate, those test formats will be cancelled, all test applicants will be notified and 100% of all test entry fees will be refunded. No other circumstances will result in refunds to the participants.
