Schedule an Exam

After you are enrolled to take an exam, FINRA will post a 120-day window in which you can schedule an appointment with Prometric. Be sure to schedule your exam session as far in advance as possible to secure your desired exam date.

Note: For assistance regarding test center capacity in a particular area and/or firms with bulk or group scheduling capacity needs, please contact Prometric at [email protected].

You can schedule an appointment online at or by calling their Contact Center toll free at (800) 578-6273 during core hours including Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (ET) and Saturday through Sunday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. (ET), excluding federal holidays.

Prometric will need to know:

  • your name and FINRA ID# 
  • phone number where you or your firm can be reached, and
  • the name of the exam or its identifying series ID (e.g., Series 7).

It is possible for you to schedule two different exams on the same day. If you want to schedule exams on different days, you must select each exam individually and complete individual appointment transactions.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your appointments do not overlap. Appointment availability will vary by exam location.

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, make sure you do so a minimum of 10 business days in advance to avoid any fees. Appointments rescheduled or cancelled within 10 business days will result in a reschedule or cancellation fee.

Be aware that you cannot schedule an appointment past the expiration date of your 120-day window nor does FINRA have a hardship policy to refund exam scheduling fees if you are unable to test. However, under limited circumstances, FINRA may extend your 120-day window if,

  • at least 10 business days before your enrollment expires, there are no available appointment times at a Prometric testing center; and
  • you are willing to take the first available appointment after the expiration date of your 120-day window.
