    Default ISACA Application processing times

    Does anyone know how long it typically takes ISACA to process a certification application. The FAQ says up to 8 weeks. Does it really take that long? I was going to submit my CISM app tomorrow.

    Thanks.

    If you have another known security related cert, it will take less time. It took me less than 2 weeks to get my CISA application response, since I held the CISSP cert when I applied.

    Thanks. That's great to hear. I have a CISSP so I hope its that quick. When I submitted, I got an auto email that it would 7-10 business days to get another email that my application was received and then another 8 weeks to process. I can't imagine having to wait up to another 10 weeks.

    ISACA told me I'm officially CISM as of today.

    Sent in my app the day the score came out. I hold the CISSP so that could have expedited the process a bit like AlexNguyen mentioned.

    A friend of mine told me that when they receive the documents, they send a mail that they got it and application evaluation is in progress..
    Then after 8 weeks he's got his CISA.
    That happened in 2010...

    I sent my signed papers and i know they got it but I still didnt get an email telling that evaluation is in progress. Does this have to be or still exist in 2012?

    Also, with a little search, now i can see that , if an application is under review, it says that in the "certification status"...
    But mine, it says that " CISA: Passed exam"

    Should I wait or send an email regarding my application?

    I spent lots of $ to send my package overseas.. Because with regular post it could last for 30 days and i need it fast. Now it got in 2 days but no signs of "under review" and i wonder why..

    I emailed my CISM application. I'm guessing most people used email instead of postal mail. I got an auto email saying it was received. Then about 4-5 days later I got another email saying it was being processed and it would take 8 weeks. The folks at ISACA seem very nice when I had to call with a question. I am sure if you drop them an email, they can help you.

    Today I got another email saying it will be 6 weeks to process - ISACA, make up your mind!

    At least now it officially shows "Application submitted." under the CGEIT.

    I got it today. So it was about 2 weeks total wait. Not too bad after all.

    I've been audited before for my application - so I hope I won't have to do that again. I emphasized that I had 3 of the ISACA certs already - that should put me at a lower risk for a audit.

    I submitted my application for CISA over a month ago, and my status still just says "Application Submitted".

    I only started getting impatient this week, but it's making me really question whether I want to take CISM in June.

    I'm still on the fence about registering, and I just hope I'll be an official CISA before the registration deadline.

    I got the mail that they have received my application 3 weeks ago, and i am still waiting
    I've sent my application in paper form with postal mail..
    It says, CISA: Application Submitted and Application Status:Unreviewed in myCertifications tab.

    I see from other people that there is another status as "Application Status:Complete-Under Review" and mine is still "Unreviewed".
    I do not understand that. What are they doing since 3 weeks...

    I think "Unreviewed" is the first status, then it goes to "Complete-Under Review" and finally they give CISA designation? Is it right?

    Then it seems i have to wait more more and more..

    .... I guess I was getting impatient too soon, about 4pm EST on Friday afternoon, I received notification that my CISA application was approved. It took about five weeks. I already have my CISSP, but it doesn't seem like that sped anything up.

    This weekend I registered for the CISM exam in June.

    Does anyone remember getting an online Application Status: Complete-Under Review? What is the estimated time of getting a formal approval after this status?
    Exam Passed email: August 1st.
    Application submitted: August 10th.
    Automated email received: August 14th.
    Online status: Completed-Under Review- August 28th.

    @gaurav - congrats on passing. To be honest, it never occurred to me to check that ISACA site for a status. I do not know what "Completed-Under Review" means. But I suspect that is good news and you should hopefully get your confirmation soon.

    Thanks Paul. ISACA is apparently pretty good at updating online status. I have my fingers crossed.

    Completed-Under Review= The certification agent checked if everything(Completed Application+Application Fee+Transcripts if you are asking for waiver etc) that is required for Committee to review your package is there

    Once this stage is done, Application goes to committee members and that could take anytime between 1-6 weeks. Provided they don't find any issue with credentials you provided.

    I sent my CISA application to certification@isaca.org on 28 Aug 2012. However, I still haven't received any email about receiving my application and no status change at the logon of Isaca site. Do you know how many days I should receive the email that they had received my application? I only received the auto mail about the FAQ questions. Thanks!

    Hi Jenny,

    You should hopefully see the status change in a couple of days. There are usually two emails, one in a day or two after the email submission and another one working 4-5 days after. The latter is a more detailed email from Dept: Certification. I guess the delay has to do with the labor day long weekend in North America.
