New Fees for Changing or Canceling Exam Dates
Please note the following scheduling and process changes:
ICMA has implemented new policies regarding fees for changing or canceling CMA exam dates. Candidates may request a transfer to the next testing window for a fee of $75 under the following circumstances:
- If you wish to change your exam appointment to the next testing window, you will be charged a fee of $75 by ICMA, and this request must be submitted to IMA Member Services at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than five days before the scheduled appointment. This fee cannot be waived.
- If you have an exam appointment, the exam appointment must be canceled before the transfer request can be processed. If your appointment is not canceled in time, ICMA cannot switch your registration.
- Prometric will charge a $50 fee if you are canceling or rescheduling your exam within 3 to 30 days of the appointment date. This fee cannot be waived.
Candidates also have the option to reschedule their appointment within the same testing window. Prometric will charge a $50 fee to candidates who reschedule/cancel appointments within 3 to 30 days of the scheduled test date. No payment will be due to ICMA for this option.
Remember: If you miss your appointment, or if you cancel your exam within 3 days (72 hours) of your scheduled appointment, you will be considered a “no-show” and you will forfeit your exam fee.
