Frequently Asked Questions

Can I register and/or pay for the exams in advance?

Yes. If you plan to take the NCCO exams, please add them to your registration by choosing "Add" next to "Full 4 - Exam Package" when you register for the conference. If you've already registered, you may add the package to your registration by contacting NAFCU Member Service Center at 800-344-5580 or  If you are unsure, you can decide later.

What if I do not want to take all four exams at the conference?

You are not required to take all four exams during the conference. You have until March 31, 2021, to pass all four exams.  You can take the exams back at your credit union with an online proctor through our virtual proctoring service. There is no additional fee to take exams using this service. Simply reach out to after the conference to have the retake packets sent to your proctor.

Should I start studying in advance of Regulatory Compliance School?

Watch the Breaking Down the NCCO Exam webinar to get NAFCU VP of Regulatory Compliance Brandy Bruyere’s best practices and study tips.
If you have time to begin studying before School, it is a good idea to do so. You will receive links to download an electronic version of the 2020 Credit Union Compliance Roadmap (formerly the GPS) and study guide in your registration confirmation email. You may begin studying in advance using those resources. 

What is the cost to retake exams that I do not pass?

Typically there is a $49 fee for members and $69 for nonmembers to retake exams. However, School attendees are not charged these fees. You can either retake exams at School at one of the many exam sessions, or you can retake exams back at your credit union. Retake exams must be completed by March 31, 2021.
