Spring Exam Application Deadline for IDFX ONLY

You should be aware of two NCIDQ Examination deadlines: the application deadline and the registration deadline. Think of these two steps as you did in college: you applied once and then registered for classes every semester. Similarly, you apply to take the NCIDQ Exam section(s) you are eligible to take and then register for the eligible sections you wish to take in each administration cycle.

The application deadline is June 1 for the fall administration of all three test sections and December 1 for the spring administration for all three test sections. If you are applying for the IDFX section only, those deadlines are August 1 for the fall test administration, and February 1 for the spring administration. If NCIDQ receives your supporting documents package after the current application deadline, we will consider your application for the next exam cycle.
