The IIA changes the eligibility window and retake policy for the CIA exam

With the 2019 CIA exam changes already implemented, The IIA is making new changes to the CIA exam’s testing windows and waiting periods. Starting on September 1, 2019, CIA candidates will only have 3 years to complete the program, instead of 4.

Candidates will still be able to request a one-year extension.

This change will not affect candidates who are approved into the program prior to September 1, 2019. These candidates will still have 4 years to complete the program and are still able to request a one-year extension.

In addition, on September 1, 2019, the waiting period to retake the CIA exam will be reduced to 60 days, instead of 90. This change is effective for all CIA candidates.

How does this affect CIA candidates?

For most CIA candidates, this change should not pose any difficulties. In fact, the reduced waiting period will make it easier for candidates who do not pass a part of the CIA exam to retake the exam. This will save candidates on lost time and help ensure you don’t need to spend too much time restudying material you’re already comfortable with. 

The CIA exam is a computer-based test that is available year-round, so you can choose the date that best fits your schedule. In addition, the CIA exam does not have any blackout dates, so a 3-year testing period will provide plenty of time to complete the CIA exam.

With the reduced waiting period for retaking parts of the CIA exam, even the hurdle of retaking a difficult part has been made easier.
