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.
