CMA Exam Registration
We recommend that you postpone paying the CMA Entrance Fee and registering for the exam until 6-8 weeks before your first exam part, for two reasons:
- You have three years from the date you pay your entrance fee to complete both parts. So, by deferring payment of your entrance fee, you can allow yourself more time to complete your exams.
- If you wait too long, you may not be able to schedule your preferred day and time, particularly if you are taking the exam near the end of a testing window.
for more information visit here: CMA Exam enrollment page on the IMA web site.
You will be given an authorization number once you have registered for the exam. The authorization number is required to make an appointment with Prometric.

Maintaining your CMA certification
