NCIDQ Examination Dates & Deadlines

There are two application approval deadlines related to the NCIDQ Exam. One is an application approval deadline, where you apply to take the NCIDQ Exam section or sections you are eligible to take. The other is a scheduling deadline where you schedule for the eligible sections you want to take in each administration cycle after your application has been accepted.

The application deadline is January 15 for the Spring administration of all three test sections and July 15 for the Fall administration of all three test sections. The application must be completed by the deadline to sit for the exams in the corresponding season. If NCIDQ receives your supporting documents package after the current application deadline, we will consider your application for the following exam cycle.
