Changing USMLE Eligibility Period

You can never change your eligibility period from Jan-March to May-July.
Once an eligibility period is assighned to you, it cannot be changed. The only option you have is to reapply to the exam and pay the whole fees again.

However, what can be done is to extend you eligibility period. Jan-March can be extended to be Jan-June. It's a one time extension and you cannot extend it more later on. The fees for extension are $50.

For more information about eligibility period extension check out this page

Remember however, that your exam appointment within your eligibility period can be changed via Prometric website.

Thanks a lot,but on the official website there is no mention of the extension fees(u said its 50$),but is it more if my centre is in India?
It's $50 for all ECFMG applicants whether in USA or in India or anywhere
check this web page

The difference in rescheduling fees with Prometric but for eligibility period extension it's the same.
