Professionals who have earned IMA's CMA designation are relied upon by businesses around the world not only for accounting, financial, and information management, but for the kind of strategic planning necessary to successfully position an organization in the changing world of global business. By earning the CMA credential, you will demonstrate both technical and strategic competencies, grounded in a firm commitment to upholding professional ethics standards.

1. Complete the transfer form: You, the student, must notify the Division of Continuing Education that you wish to transfer from the registered course. Download the transfer form from the UCF Test Prep website. This first step in the process is the most essential. We will consider your transfer request active on the day and time that we physically receive the signed form. Any transfer forms received outside of our regular business hours of Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM will be considered "received" on our next regular business day.
2. Payment: There is a payment required for transferring to another course. A percentage of your registration fee is applied as a credit to the new transfer course. The credit is determined based on how much of the course is remaining, and not on how many classes that you have attended or missed.
We determine the remaining time for the course from the point in time we receive the transfer form, not from the time it is dated and signed. Only class times that meet after we receive the transfer form will count as remaining course time.
The credit is applied to the current registration fee of the course being transferred to, and any remaining balance will need to be paid by the student. There is also an additional transfer fee of $50.00 (fifty dollars) that is added to your registration fee. The $50.00 transfer fee is required to be paid regardless of how much the credit is.
