There are two re-test opportunities. Candidates must wait at least 30 days in between test dates. All exam attempts must be taken within 12 months from the initial enrollment date.
Candidates who fail the exam three times may retest again after a one-year waiting period (from the third exam attempt). Candidates must re-apply and meet the eligibility requirements in effect at the time of the retest following the waiting period.
Candidates who fail the exam the first time and do not take their retests within the required 12-month time frame may purchase the CSA Exam Only option for an additional fee.
