Application - Examination Fee

All applicants for examination shall make written application upon a form approved by the board and furnished by its secretary or the Clerk of the Appellate Courts. All applicants must be at least eighteen years of age and must be a graduate of a high school or possess an equivalent education. Such application shall be filed in duplicate with the Clerk of the Appellate Courts at least thirty days prior to any regular or special examination and shall be accompanied by a nonrefundable fee of $125, payable to the Clerk of the Appellate Courts, and accompanied by not less than 3 affidavits or certificates, on forms to be supplied by the Clerk of the Appellate Courts, from responsible persons unrelated to the applicant by marriage or blood attesting that the applicant is a person of good moral character. If the applicant does not take the examination for which application is made or if the applicant fails to pass the required examination, the original application shall remain valid for the next ensuing examination; however, the applicant must notify the Clerk of the Appellate Courts in writing by the filing deadline that he or she intends to take the examination and file an updated application or a letter verifying that the application on file remains current. Payment of a nonrefundable fee of $125 must accompany the notification.
