Apply

Applications will only be accepted if there is an examination/practice-based assessment available for you. See the availability of PER for your specialty.

Deadline

The deadline to apply without penalty fees is April 30, of the year before you wish to take the examination or assessment (e.g., the application deadline for spring 2017 exams is April 30, 2016).

If you will only meet the time in practice requirements after the deadline but before the exam or assessment, please contact per@royalcollege.ca to discuss whether there is enough time to process your application.

Late applications

Applications received after the deadline will be subject to late penalty fees. Although we endeavour to process all applications on time, there is no guarantee that an application received past the deadline can be processed in time for the next exam or assessment session.
