Refunds from "Advanced Government Solutions, Inc."

[B]If mariners submit applications for upgrades or endorsements that are subsequently denied/rejected, do we receive a refund for the $140 Pay.Gov fees paid in advance?[/B]

"[U][I]Since they would have to be evaluated in order to be denied/rejected, they would not be able to receive a refund of the evaluation fee. However, they would be able to request a refund of the issuance fee.[/I][/U]

Thank you for contacting the National Maritime Center.

I was advised to just pay the evaluation fee and then pay for exams and/or issuance once it gets to that point. Which is actually a good idea.
