Appointments & Enrollments

How to Request an Extension

You cannot schedule an appointment past the expiration date of your 120-day enrollment. If your enrollment expires, FINRA will require you to submit a new request, along with applicable fees. You must accept any appointment time available within the remaining enrollment period. However, if you attempt to schedule an appointment at one of your area testing centers at least 10 business days before your enrollment expires, and there are no appointment times available with either testing vendor (Pearson or Prometric), FINRA may extend your enrollment to the next available appointment.


Extensions will not be granted if you call after the expiration date. Extensions will also be denied if: 

  • You call before your enrollment expires and there are appointment times available before the expiration date, but you are unable or unwilling to accept the available opening(s); or
  • You call before the enrollment expires, there are no appointments available before the expiration date, and you are unable or unwilling to take the first available appointment after the expiration date.
