Apply for the Exam
Before you take the CFE Exam, your application and supporting documentation must have been processed. This includes your CFE Exam application, details of your
Professional Recommendation Forms,
proof of your education, a recent photo and the exam fee.
The cost to take the CFE Exam is $350. If you purchased the CFE Exam Prep Course, a $100 credit on the cost of the CFE Exam fee will be applied, reducing the CFE Exam fee to $250.
We recommend you gather all of your documentation and send it with your CFE Exam application approximately one month before you are ready to take the CFE Exam.
Choose from the following options to apply for the CFE Exam:
Submit your CFE Exam application and
payment online and visit the
Certification Portal to submit your supporting documentation.
Download the PDF version of the
CFE Exam application and submit a completed form, along with supporting documentation by mail or email to the address listed on the form.
