USMLE Step 3 Fees
The USMLE Step 3 fee is non-refundable and non-transferable from one eligibility period to another or from one application to another. Your application fee must be paid by Visa, MasterCard or ACH transaction. With the exception of the following boards, the fee for the 2013/2014 Step 3 is $800.

  • Iowa $850
  • South Dakota $950
  • Vermont $835

Eligibility Extension for USMLE Step 3
If you need to extend your eligibility period, you may submit an eligibility extension request for review. If your request is approved, a one-time contiguous 90-day extension may be granted. To request an extension, you must complete the Eligibility Extension application and submit a $65 processing fee. To review additional information and find out if you qualify, please review the Eligibility Extension page.

Score Recheck for USMLE Step 3
The score recheck fee is $65. For all USMLE Steps, standard procedures ensure that the scores reported for you accurately reflect your performance. A change in score based on a recheck is an extremely remote possibility. However, a recheck will be done if you submit the request form and fee to the FSMB.

Transcript Fees
You may designate up to two recipients for each $65 fee, regardless of the number of examinations (USMLE, FLEX, SPEX) included on the official transcript. Cost for transcripts: 1-2 recipients/$65, 3-4 recipients/$130, 5-6 recipients/$195, etc. Once a transcript request has been submitted, only the recipient(s) listed on the request will be processed, and the fee will not be applied to an additional recipient.

Express shipping - $25 per recipient
Most state boards receive transcripts electronically. All other transcripts are sent via first class mail. Express shipping is available to addresses within the US and its territories for an additional $25 per recipient. This service is available for boards that do not receive transcripts electronically or for regulatory agencies. Please note that express service does not deliver to P.O. Box addresses. All other transcripts are sent via first class mail.

SPEX Fees
The SPEX exam fee is $1300 per administration, $650 of which is non-refundable.

Eligibility Extension for SPEX
If you need to extend your eligibility period, you may submit an eligibility extension request for review. If your request is approved, a one-time contiguous 90-day extension may be granted. To request an extension, you must complete the Eligibility Extension application form and submit a $65 processing fee
