The latest COVID 19 update for CMA candidates

The latest COVID-19 update for CMA candidates

Dear Fenil:


Our top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic is the health and safety of our CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) candidates and staff. With that in mind, please be aware of these important updates for the CMA exam:

  • Masks required – Until further notice, test takers are required to bring and wear a mask during the entirety of their time at the test center. Both medical masks or cloth face coverings are acceptable. Masks with exhale valves are prohibited for use at the test center. Any test taker who comes to the test center without a mask will not be allowed to test, marked as a “no show,” and will not be eligible for a free reschedule.
  • Rescheduling fees resume on August 1 – You may reschedule a CMA exam at no cost until July 31, 2020. The normal rescheduling fee will resume beginning on August 1, 2020.
  • Reminder: We have extended upcoming CMA testing windows to give you more scheduling flexibility in this challenging time. Register for your exam today.
  • Prometric test centers are open – Nearly all Prometric testing centers around the world have reopened, many at full capacity. Schedule your exam with Prometric.

For the latest information on test center precautions and protocols, make sure to view the Prometric COVID-19 FAQ page.


We will continue to communicate with you as changes occur. Please feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.


We wish you all the best on the CMA exam!
