Exam Retakes

All Institutes ACSR/AAI exam retakes are completed online. Once we receive the Exam Retake Form and payment, we will submit the request to the Institutes and immediately (within 24 hours) the retake exam will be ordered and placed in your Student Institutes Account. 

You will only have 30 days to retake the exam, so if the exam expires you will need to order and pay for a new one. We recommend ordering exam retakes only when you are ready to sit for the exam to avoid having any issues with the exam expiring.
