The CGFNS Qualifying Exam® is conducted four times a year during five-day test windows, traditionally in the months of March, July, September, and November. The test windows may vary from year to year.
Once you successfully complete the credentials review, an Authorization to Test (ATT) notification letter is sent via email. You will be provided with two test “windows” of five days each. You may select only one test window, date, time and location per Certification Program order. If you select more than one test window, date, time and location, your exam registration will be cancelled upon review and you will receive notification that you are required to make a single selection.
For example, if you are approved by the 31st of January, your five-day test windows will be in March and July. You may pick one day to sit for the exam during one of those months.
