CMA Exam Dates, Schedule and Calendar (Don’t


Miss the Testing Window!)
Last Updated: September 10, 2017 by Stephanie Ng — 101 Comments

As part of the planning, know the CMA exam dates, schedule and deadline. Here is the latest
info:

Overview of CMA Exam Schedule


There are currently 3 testing windows each year for the CMA exam:

Testing Window CMA Exam Dates 2018

Jan – Feb Jan 1 to Feb 28

http://ipassthecmaexam.com/cma-exam-schedule/ 1/45
3/4/2018 CMA Exam Dates, Schedule + Calendar (Don't Miss the Testing Window!)

May – Jun May 1 to Jun 30

Sep – Oct Sep 1 to Oct 31

If order to reserve a space at the exam site at the Prometic center, you will have to get an
authorization number. It is advised that you send in your registration around 6 weeks before
the intended date of your exam in order to get everything processed on time.

Scheduling Tips

If possible, schedule your exam in the first month of the testing window (i.e. Jan, May, Sep).

Candidates are allowed to reschedule their exams for free within the same testing window.
For example, if you run out of studying time, you can still postpone your January exam to
February. If you schedule the exam in February, you can’t extend to May, and instead must
pay in full for your next exam.

Other Important CMA Exam Dates


Please note that the clock starts to clock the day you sent in the entrance fee.

Specifically, you will need to register for the exam within 12 months, and complete the
process including the experience requirements within 3 years.

Example of Your CMA Exam Calendar


Let’s say today is January 1, 2018 and you plan to complete the CMA program within 6
months. It is assumed that you have already accumulated two years of relevant working
experience as an accountant working in a corporation.

Apply for IMA membership and pay the entrance fee – Jan 2018
Pick a CMA review course and start studying – Jan 2018
Register for the CMA exam – around Mid March 2018
Sit for the exam (part 1) – May 2018
Sit for the exam (part 2) – June 2018
Pass the 2 parts and get your CMA certification!

Hi Raas, sure you can do that if you have the time and commitment to prepare
for both sections within a short period of time. From the conversation with my
readers, it seems to me that quite a lot of them are taking the two sections
closely together. Stephanie

Hi Atef, thanks a lot for your kind words. I really appreciate it.
I believe you can pay for the membership online through credit card. Is that
possible for you?
For Sept 2013 then you can join IMA first, then take the time to pick the review
course designed specifically for the CMA exam. It is not necessary to take

Hi! Do you recommend studying for two parts and then take the two exams or study
for it one by one?

For example, I plan on taking the exam in May/June testing window. Should I study
part 1 only, take the part 1 exam in May, and study part 2 in May and June, then
take the exam in June?

Reply

Stephanie says
January 27, 2013 at 6:54 pm

Hi Salisa, I believe most people study for the exam one by one. Unlike the CPA
exam where you have to fly to the US for the exam, you can likely take it at
your local city, in which case it is easier to tackle one at a time. Hope it helps!

Hi Stephanie,
I need some clarification about registering for the exam within one year. They says
we must register for the exam within one year of registration. But what about the
exam date? The date of exam must fall within the one year period?

To be more specific, I have enrolled for the course in October 2012 and its valid till
31 Sep, 2013. I want to register for the exam while renewing my registration. Do i
have to take the exam before 31 Sep 2013 or Register before 31 Sep and sit for the
exam in October? Pls advice

Thank you for contacting the IMA. You must register for an exam no later
than October 11, 2013. You do not have to take the exam in October you
must register for the exam. If you do not register for an exam part you will
have to repay the CMA Entrance fee. You can register for an exam in
either the January – February 2014 window or the May – June 2014
window. I hope this clears things up for you.

Hi Stephanie,

I am currently a home maker in San Diego,with a Bachelors Degree in Commerce


(B.com) from India. I am looking to obtain CMA certification. When I looked into the
type of IMA membership,I didn’t know what kind of membership will suit my needs. I
just want to do CMA for my qualification and not for my career. It will be of great
help if u can guide me as to what kind of membership would be economical to
choose at this point of time.

Also, how do I get started to prepare for this exam and where do I get the materials
from.

Hi Stephanie,

I hope you have a wonderful time while on holidays in China. I have few questions
relating to CMA, will appreciate if you can reply to them.

– How much is it of value if a person get CMA and then go to find jobs in US from
Canada? Will CMA have significance as CPA has in the job market in US?

– If i pay entrance fee in this month say for instance at 15 September , 6 weeks
time will be at the end of October, therefore i can sit in the next window that will
open in January ? ? is that correct?

http://ipassthecmaexam.com/cma-exam-schedule/ 13/45
3/4/2018 CMA Exam Dates, Schedule + Calendar (Don't Miss the Testing Window!)

– IF i pass part I , i will have 12 months to pass part II , is it correct? If i couldn’t


pass part II in the 12 months, my part I will be treated as cancelled and i have to re
appear in part i and part ii , paying entrance fee again ?

Thanks

Hi Arshad, thanks for your note! On your questions:


1. As of now, CMA is not as widely regarded as CPA in my opinion. However, if
you are interested in certain industries, especially those with strong
manufacturing base, they do value the CMA certification. Also, if you are lucky
and the future employer is a CMA, I am SURE he/she will be delighted
because they aren’t a lot out there (compared to CPAs).

2. I think you can actually sit for the exam even in the Sep-Oct window,
because everything is online and the approval came very quickly, for me at
least. But please double check with IMA. If it is for the Jan window I am quite
sure it’s fine.

3. No, you need to take (NOT necessarily pass) either Part 1 or Part 2 within
12 months. Then, need to pass both within 3 years. After that, you need to
repay the entrance fee and take whatever you have passed again.

Hope it helps? Stephanie

Hi Stephanie

Thanks for responding to other people’s queries as it helps everybody!

I have a specific query though, may be you can help in that.

– I have joined IMA and paid the membership fee ($235). Now I understand I am
required to pay certificate entrance fee ($240) and then exam fee ($395) to appear
for exam?

– I am aiming for late October exam date as I am taking off from work in September
end. My question is whether you have any idea on the probable dates of CMA
exam in the month of October 2014. My test centre will be in Qatar. Will I be able to
get something late October?

Appreciate your quick response.

Thanks

Hello Ali!
On the $$, yes I am afraid there are 3 levels of fees…
I believe for Qatar center, you can schedule your exam at prometric.com now
so you’ll know the date. If you prefer Fridays and Saturdays, please schedule
as soon as possible.

Hi Mohamed,
Let’s say you don’t pass both exams, then the other impact that
is you have to pay the entrance fee again.

If you pass Part 1 of the exam and not Part 2, then you will lose
the exam credit of Part 1 and you have to do it all over again,
including paying the entrance fee. Regards, Stephanie

Hi Naveen, if you have graduated from your bachelor or other courses, then
you can only apply as a standard candidate. The student discount is applicable
only to those who take at least 6 credit hours (roughly 2 standard courses)
each semester.

Hi,

What is the average time taken to prepare for the CMA exam (both parts taken in
the same window)? Or rather what is the shortest time period required to prepare
sufficiently for the exam?
I am an ACCA (having taken P4 and P5) and thus have good accounting
knowledge. I plan on taking the Gleim CMA Review as well.

Reply

Stephanie Ng says
September 28, 2014 at 8:46 pm

Hi Leena, candidates are suggested to allocated 100-150 hours to study for


each part of the CMA exam. As for the shortest, I don’t think anyone can give
you an answer… I suppose there could be a few people who can take the
exam and pass without studying. But this is certainly not the vast majority.

If you have a good knowledge in the exam content, it’s great news. All the best
to your exam! Stephanie

Entrance Fee ($) Jun-15 Jun-15

Hi ER,
Looks good to me! It is safer if you take the two parts in different testing
windows (i.e. option 1 is better). Many of my readers pulled it off with taking
two tests at the same time, but they often told me they would do it separate if
they have the choice again.

http://ipassthecmaexam.com/cma-exam-schedule/ 23/45

For exam registration, Aug 15 is fine but if you want to sit for the exam on
Fri/Sat, better register (and schedule) your exam at least two months before
your planned exam date in Sep. This means you need to register in July.

Hi Rob, it depends on the specific prometric center. For big ones they open
every monday to friday, but I know the smaller ones may only open a few days
during the week. In those cases saturday slots may not be available at all. I
suggest that you check it out in advance — you can take a look at the
prometric website on availability before you apply for the exam.

Hi Stephanie,
Thanks for the information.
I checked the prometric site but it doesn’t allow us to check availability
unless we have an authorization number from IMA. I believe we need to
pay for this beforehand. Is that right?
Thanks.

Oh yes, you are right Rob, I used to be able to check that but they
must have changed something on the site. What you can still do is to
locate the test center (I just tried that and it worked), write down the
phone number, and call them. Hopefully you only have 1-2 centers in
mind. Good luck! Stephanie

Hello,

I did the CMA part 1 exam in June 2014 and i pass in it.My question is: until when
do I have time to pass the second part.(I paid for my entrance Fee in January 2014)

Thank you.

Hi Ahmad! The last testing month is January 2017 as you have three years to
complete both parts. Still have time, but if you can get it done sooner, the
better 🙂 Cheers, Stephanie

Hi Stephanie,
I wanted to clarify.
We need to get both parts done and the work experience of 2 years done all in 3
years?
is this correct?
if this is the case, we need to be working and doing these exams together for sure.
thanks.

Haha Rob, that would be too tough. You just need to complete the two parts
within 3 years. Then you can fulfill the experience requirement afterwards. But
if you have prior experience gained either before or during the exam, that
counts too. Regards, Stephanie

Hi,
I appreciate your insights to the above questions.
I really learned a lot.
I just wanna ask.

1. What if I take Part 1 and fail, am I still legible to take Part 2 in the next Exam
Window?

2. If yes, when is the maximum time where I am allowed to retake the failed exam
(Part 1)

3. How many times are we allowed to retake the failed Part until we pass?

Reply

Stephanie Ng says
November 23, 2015 at 7:47 pm

Hi Mike, you are most welcome! On your questions:


1. Yes you can take Part 2 first if preferred, although, in my opinion, it’s better
to retake Part 1 when you are still familiar with the concepts.
2. You can take each part once in each testing window. Technically, you can
take it 9 times (3 testing windows for 3 years). After that, you need to repay the
fee for the CMA and count again.
3. As above… though I really hope we don’t need to do that 😉

Hey
Thanks a lot Stephanie,

I passed my cma part 1 exam in 2014 and I need to pass the second Part before 13
January 2017.
my question is if i do the part 2 exam for example on 10 January 2017 but I get the
result after the 13th(the membership in cma program is expired) and i pass the
exam.Would that count or I have to do the two CMA exams again.

thanks a lot .

Hello
Thank you so much for your thorough review of everything about the CMA.

However, I found one incorrect information in your statement I would like you to
clarify.\
you said “Specifically, you will need… AND complete the process including the
experience requirements within 3 YEARS. I would like to point out that the 2016
CMA handbook states
“Candidates for the CMA Certification must complete two continuous years of
professional experience in management accounting and/or financial management.
This requirement may be completed prior to or within seven years of passing the
examination.”

Please let me know if I understand it incorrectly. Thank you in advance

Mick

Hello Stephanie,

i have scheduled my appointment for cma part 1 and after getting the confirmation
number of the appointment, there was something i wanted to ask.

All i have got is authorization number from IMA and confirmation number from
prometric, how will i actually sign-in, isn’t there any prometric ID, username and
password that is provided by the prometric or do I need to register/create an
account on prometric. Couldn’t find the info anywhere.

And you have been doing a great work.

Thanks,
Ali

Hi Ali,
It has been a while back I registered for the exam, but yes you should start at
the prometric website, then “schedule my test” , pick a country and city, then
after agreeing with the policy etc you will be asked to enter the autorization
number from the IMA. It should be quite self-explanatory after that. Regards,
Stephanie
