US| To address the ongoing challenges facing exam candidates by the COVID-19 pandemic, FINRA is adopting an interim accommodation request process to allow candidates to take additional FINRA exams online, including the Series 24, Series 57, Series 79 and Series 99 exams. This change is eective on February 24, 2021. An interim accommodation request is not required for the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE), Series 6 or Series 7 exams, which have been available online for all candidates since mid-July 2020.
To request an interim accommodation, candidates should visit the Schedule An Exam page on the FINRA website. Exam candidates seeking to take an exam online based on the interim accommodation request process must complete and submit to FINRA an Online Exam Administration Request Form. To complete the form, in addition to the candidate’s name and CRD number, the candidate must provide an explanation as to why they are making a request to take an exam online. During this temporary period, no other supporting materials, such as the documentation required for a testing accommodation, will be required to be submitted with the request to take an exam online as an accommodation.
FINRA will continue to assess the impact of COVID-19 to determine how long to oer this interim accommodation and will announce any future changes to this interim accommodation policy.
