- AICP Exam Application Window Opens June 1, 2017; Early Bird Deadline ends June 6, 2017 May 23, 2017
For those of you planning to apply to take the AICP Exam during the Fall 2017 Testing Window (November 6 – 20, 2017), the Application Period opens at 9:00 am on Thursday, June 1, 2017 and ends on Friday, June 30, 2017 at 11:59 pm CT. The Early Bird Deadline ends on Tuesday, June 6th at 11:59 pm CT.
We highly recommend that you apply by the Early Bird deadline, if you can, since it gives you the opportunity to receive feedback on your application, address and potentially correct any inadequacies, and still be accepted to take the AICP Exam within the Fall 2017 Testing Window. If you submit your application after the June 6th deadline, and your application is rejected, you will need to wait until the Spring 2018 Application Window opens to apply again (likely to be in December 2017).
