Eligibility is established at the time of exam registration and is good for twelve (12) months (365 days). Exam registration and payment are required before you can schedule and take an exam. You will forfeit your fees if you do not schedule and take the exam during your 12-month eligibility period. No eligibility deferrals or extensions are allowed.
The online registration process will enable you to register for an exam, purchase study aids and an ISACA membership, which will immediately provide significant exam-related discounts. The final step of the process will enable you to pay online using a credit card or indicate that payment will follow by check or wire.
Exam registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Candidates are able to schedule their exam for any available date/time/location within their 365-day eligibility period. Candidates who are unable to take their exam on their scheduled date are able to reschedule during their eligibility period if completed more than 48 hours prior to the original scheduled testing appointment.
If you are within 48 hours of your scheduled testing appointment, you must take the exam or forfeit the registration fee.
