How can I find the status of my Individual application?

Answer: For applications that do not require a third party exam you will receive an approval package by mail when your application is approved. Please note that processing times may vary, but generally take between 2 to 3 weeks. You will be contacted if an issue arises in the processing of your application.

For applications requiring a third party exam, you will receive testing information at the end of your online application process (this is also available in your CDX inbox).  The fee for your first exam attempt was included in your application fee, a $70 fee is required for each additional exam attempt needed. Once you passed the third party exam you will receive an approval package by mail when your application is approved. Please note that processing times may vary, but generally take 2 to 3 weeks. You will be contacted if an issue arises in the processing of your application.
