Annual Certification Maintenance Registration
** Notice of increase in the annual certification maintenance fee.**
The ACBSP™ certification maintenance fee has not increased since 2016.
Effective with the 2021 payment, all fees will be increased by $10. The early fee (paid from November to January 31st) will be $135 and the late fee (paid February 1st to June 30th) will be $160.
The ACBSP™ has revised the policy that governs annual certification maintenance requirements and associated processes. This form must be completed by all active certificants online on an annual basis. The ACBSP™ annual certification maintenance fee must be paid no later than June 30th. Failure to pay prior to the deadline will result in the certification becoming inactive. All inactive certificants are required to pay a $50 reactivation fee during the reactivation process.
If you are full-time faculty, please contact the National Office to receive a promo code prior to completing this form.
You must submit proof of full-time faculty status to receive the promo code via fax at (888) 419-9990 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A letter from the department chair or dean stating full-time faculty status for the current calendar year is required. This letter is required on an annual basis and must be submitted to the National Office prior to completing this form in order to receive a discount on your certification maintenance fee.
Please know that you must have cookies enabled for the form and payment system to work properly.
Please complete the required registration form and make payment for 2021. Read the revised policy and terms before you attest to your agreement on the registration form. Be prepared to supply an email address on the registration form that is unique to you and not shared with any other ACBSP™ certificant. The email address you provide will be used for communication of information regarding your certification and will be the address where you will receive your digital voting ballot for the board of directors election in February.
