About CFRE International’s service fees:
Paying by check, in non-U.S. currency, and/or submitting a late recertification application means that your materials must be hand-processed. We charge service fees due to the extra steps and costs involved.
*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 U.S. currency if paying by check
- Submitting recertification applications on or before your certification expiration date (listed on your certificate and your online account)
