2018 ASA Changes Announcement – March 31, 2017

Implementation of changes to Exams P and FM to be delayed by one exam administration

While there are six administrations per year for both exam P and FM, the item banks for the exams are updated three times per year. To ensure a smooth transition, implementation of the 2018 changes to exams P and FM will occur after the second update of 2018.  This will delay the implementation for these two exams by one administration.

  • First Exam P administration under new ASA curriculum – September 2018
  • First Exam FM administration under new ASA curriculum – October 2018

This change does not affect the transition rules for these exams nor does it affect the rules for being able to earn an ASA under the current curriculum (which must be accomplished by July 1, 2018).
