New this Year: Early-Bird Application Window
In an effort to encourage early application,
applicants who participate in the Early-Bird
Application Window (see above) will receive their
approval or denial notice in advance of other
applicants, giving them more time to study for
the exam. Any applicant who submits his or her
online application by Sunday, June 14, 2009 and
whose employment and education verifications are
received by Sunday, June 28, 2009 (2 weeks after
the Early-Bird application deadline) will receive
their approval or denial notice by Monday, August
10, 2009. Any applicant who submits during the
Early-Bird Application Window who does not
receive an approval or denial notice by this date
will be notified that their application is still
under review and that their application will be
given priority over other applicants to make sure
that they receive their approval or denial notice as soon as possible.

Notifications
Applicants for the AICP exam will typically be
notified of application approval or denial
approximately 8 weeks after a complete
application is submitted (application +
verification documents). It is our goal to
notify all applicants no later than Monday,
September 21, 2009. Any applicant who does not
receive an approval or denial notice by this date
will be contacted to inform them that their
application is still under review and that they
will receive a final status update shortly.
Please note that applications submitted on or
near the application deadline may take longer to
process and review due to high volume.
