Registering with ASBOG and Paying Fees

When the Board has approved you to sit for the examination(s), the Board office will send you a notice with further instructions. The instructions explain how to:

  • register with ASBOG and pay the examination fee(s)
  • pay the proctoring fees to the Board office.

Note that you must meet ASBOG’s deadlines for registering for the exam and paying the exam fees. If you fail to meet ASBOG’s deadlines, ASBOG will not send an examination packet for you to the Board office and you will not be allowed to sit for the exam(s).
