Exam Registration
Candidates may find online exam registration and related information on the Exam Registration page of the CAS website. Prior to completing an online application for Exams LC, ST, S, and 5-9, candidates must submit an Electronic Signature Authorization Form—details are available on the same page.

There is only one registration deadline for each exam. No late registrations will be accepted. The exam dates and registration deadlines are available in the "2015 Examination Schedule" section. Please allow at least 10 working days for your mailed application to reach its destination. Whether payment is made by personal or company check, it is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that the application and fee are received by the stated deadline. Exceptions will not be made.

Transition Rules for new Exam S
Candidates should review carefully the Transition Rules for Exam S approved by the CAS Board of Directors. These rules can be located on the Transition Rules page of the website.

Syllabus Update for Exam S
An initial syllabus for Exam S was published on the CAS website earlier this year. After careful review, the Syllabus Committee made some clarifying changes to the Exam S Syllabus. The final syllabus for the October 2015 administration of this exam can be found in the Exams & Admissions section of the CAS website.

The Examination Committee expects that Exam S will consist of approximately 40 to 50 multiple-choice questions.

Note: This Syllabus is subject to change in the future. The CAS is not responsible for any errors or omissions in the Syllabus.
