2020 T.A.S.T.E TASTE®

Unfortunately, we will not be continuing with plans to hold the T.A.S.T.E. Test® in 2020. We look forward to bringing the test back in 2021.

If you applied and were accepted to take the 2020 T.A.S.T.E TASTE®, contact us to request a deferral for 2021, or refund of your exam seating fee (if applicable). Please note the $35 application fee is nonrefundable. If you receive a refund and later choose to take the exam in 2021, you would automatically be accepted and will receive instructions in January.
