Exam dates

Approval to take the exam

In order to be eligible to take the CGFNS Qualifying Exam® during a certain test window, you will have to be approved by the date given in the table below. All of your documents will need to be received and evaluated before that date.

Once you have been approved, you receive an Authorization to Test notification. You may schedule one day during the five-day test window in one of the two months you are authorized to take the exam. For example, if you are approved by 31 January, your five-day test windows are in March and July, so you may pick one day from one of those months.

Register for one exam only. If you select more than one test window, more than one location, or more than one date and time, your exam registration will be cancelled upon review and you will be required to re-register for a single selection.
