Payment of Fees
It is CCI’s policy to deposit all fees at the time the fees are received. If an examination application or renewal is not complete when submitted (invalid documentation of qualification, missing required documentation, missing payment, etc.), CCI will not approve it until it is complete.
For examination applications, the applicant will have 60 days to complete their application (which includes submission of examination fee and required supporting documents. If CCI does not receive these documents or any communication within 60 days after the original application was submitted or returned, CCI will refund the examination fee minus a $100 filing fee.
When you pay by check you expressly authorize CCI, if your check is dishonored or returned for any reason, to electronically debit your account for the amount of the check plus a processing fee of $25 (or the legal limit), plus any applicable sales tax. The use of a check for payment is your acknowledgment and acceptance of this policy and its terms. If your check is dishonored or returned for any reason, your Authorization to Test (ATT) will be suspended until payment is completed. Credentials will not be awarded/renewed to any individual with an outstanding balance owed to CCI.
