Credit Request Submission Schedule:

Submissions are processed on the first Monday of each month. On holidays, submissions are processed the Friday prior to the holiday. All submissions received by the submission deadline follow a process that ends with the governing board’s feedback and/or approval in the subsequent calendar month. You can expect the governing board decision session to happen no later than the second Tuesday of each month. (Example, a submission on the first Monday of January will go to final decision no later than the second Tuesday of February.)

Once the governing board has made a decision and/or provided feedback, the Office of CME normally sends approval letters within 10 days of receiving final decisions and feedback from the governing board. These letters go the Event Planner/Administrator indicated on the application, and the Activity Chair.
