Take the CGMS Exam

Please note: CGMS testing is temporarily unavailable as NGMA transitions to a new platform.
We anticipate this delay to be 2-3 weeks (ending in mid to late September).

Applications will still be accepted during this period, and, once testing resumes,
NGMA will provide instructions to those needing to schedule their exams.

We apologize for this delay, and we look forward to launching our new platform
and improving the experience for CGMS candidates.


You must submit a CGMS application and pay the exam fee before scheduling your exam.

The computer-based CGMS exam is offered in-person at testing centers and through live-remote proctor (LRP) delivery. You now have the option of taking the exam through remote proctoring in the comfort of your home or office.  Candidates will be given three (3) hours to complete the exam.

The CGMS Exam fee is $500 for members and $674 for nonmembers (includes a 1-year membership to NGMA).
The exam fee includes a non-refundable $75 application fee.
