How long does the CMA exam application process take?
Share this article:
You can expect to wait between three and five business days after applying for the CMA exam before you get any confirmation by email.
There are several things to note when thinking about applying for your CMA exam. We advise that you try to schedule it at least four weeks in advance: this is to give you the best chance of getting your first choice for date, time and location. The latest you can schedule an exam is 72 hours in advance. You’ll also need to make sure that you schedule and take your exam during your assigned testing window, as if you don’t, you’ll need to pay for a new registration all over again.
