“To align with the three-part CIA exam, the CIA program eligibility window has been adjusted from 4 years to 3 years. This reflects the amount of time typically required to complete the certification process. Candidates who are already approved into the program prior to September 1, 2019 will maintain a 4-year program window. Candidates approved into the program on or after September 1, 2019 will have 3 years to complete the program. Candidates can still request a one-year extension.
In addition, effective September 1, 2019, the waiting period to retake an exam will be shortened from 90 to 60 days. As long as it is still within the program eligibility window, candidates can retake the exam after waiting 60 days.”
