Submit your application:
Application review takes 1-2 business days for online applications and 3-5 business days for hardcopy applications.
After ASQ completes the review process you will receive an approval notification via email or a "hold" message explaining that more information is needed in order for your application to be approved. If it is determined that you do not meet the minimum requirements for the exam you applied for, we will issue a refund of your application fee minus a $70 non-refundable processing fee (fee will increase to $100 effective January 1, 2021).
• Computer-Based Testing (CBT):
1-2 business days after you receive your approval notification, you will receive an eligibility email containing instructions on how to schedule your exam with our testing provider Prometric.
• Paper-Based Testing (PBT):
If you have registered for a Paper-based or translated exam you will not receive an eligibility email. Instead you will receive a seating letter with your exam details including time, and location approximately 2 weeks before your exam date.
