How to Request State Insurance CE Credit

Requests for state insurance CE credit must be made at the time you enroll in a course. Upon enrollment you will be prompted to provide your national producer number (NPN) and state insurance license number. Within 10 days of your successful completion of the course, the College will report the applicable state insurance CE credit on your behalf with the state(s) you have selected provided you have furnished accurate information including any required affidavits and you have complied with both the College's and your state's rules, requirements and procedures.

It is your responsibility to understand and comply with your state insurance department's rules, requirements and procedures including, but not limited to, proctor and affidavit requirements. The College will not be held responsible for a department's denial of CE credit or the College's inability to report the CE credit because of your non-compliance with the agency's and/or the College's rules, requirements and procedures.

If you are currently enrolled in a course and want state insurance CE credit reported to a state but did not select state insurance CE when registering, please contact our Student Services Center at 800-237-9990 option 2.

Requesting State Insurance Credit After Completing the Course

If you initially declined state insurance CE credit at the time you enrolled in a course and later decide you want credit, download the Request for CE Credit form and send it to the College within one week of passing your exam. A processing fee of $45 is assessed for all requests for state insurance CE credit submitted after completion of the course. The College for Financial Planning does not accept responsibility for credits rejected by the state due to untimely or incomplete submission of the Request for CE Credit form to the College.

Proctor Requirements and Affidavit

It is recommended that students use a Prometric, PSI, or ISO Quality Testing center for all College for Financial Planning examinations. These Testing centers satisfy most states' and the College for Financial Planning's definition of a disinterested third party proctor*. If you choose not to take your examination at a testing facility, you must arrange for your own disinterested third party to serve as your proctor or monitor.

Affidavits are signed electronically as part of the online testing system. Please see below for exceptions:

  • Arkansas - A state-specific affidavit must be used. Prometric testing facilities are NOT approved for AR state insurance CE. PSI and ISO Quality Testing centers ARE approved.
  • New York - YOU MUST TEST AT A TESTING CENTER** and a state-specific affidavit must be used.

Arkansas and New York residents: print out the affidavit form and take it with you to the testing center. Both you and the proctor must sign the affidavit. Send the signed affidavit form to ce.compliance@cffp.edu or fax to 602-626-2466 within a week of passing the final exam. CE credit cannot be reported to Arkansas or New York until signed affidavits are received.

If you have any questions regarding the above information or are unable to access any of the links, forms, or charts mentioned, please contact our Student Services Center at 800-237-9990 option 2 or via email.

*A monitor or proctor is a disinterested third party (DTP) who serves witness that you have satisfied the requirements of your course and testing procedures in an ethical manner. The proctor must be someone with whom the examinee has no business or family relationship. Business relationship is further defined as working within the same company regardless of physical location, title, or position. A proctor cannot be a currently enrolled student in any College for Financial Planning courses.
