About CFRE International’s service fees:
Paying by cheque, in non-US currency, and/or submitting a late recertification application means that your materials must be hand-processed. We charge service fees because of the extra steps and costs involved with these transactions.
*Changing your form of payment after submission constitutes a refund, and will result in a refund processing fee.
**Applies to withdrawal requests for applications that have already undergone the review process only.
Help us to give you the best and fastest service by avoiding the transactions that incur service fees. We encourage all applicants to avoid service fees by:
- Paying online via credit card or debit card
- Making sure that funds submitted are in US currency if paying by cheque
- Submitting recertification applications on or before your certification expiration date (listed on your certificate and your online account)
