Students may take as many prep courses as needed, but sponsorship is mandatory to schedule and sit for the exam.
The specific procedure for taking your Series 63 exam is as follows:
- Get sponsored by a FINRA-approved firm. Have this firm submit your fingerprints, background check and application to FINRA.
- Once your enrollment is confirmed, contact the Prometric Testing Center to schedule your exam. You have roughly four months from your confirmation to do so.
- Pay your fee and take the test. A passing grade is 72 percent or higher on the 65-question multiple-choice test. You have 75 minutes to complete it.
- Once you are notified that you have passed the test, you will receive your Series 63 license. If you have already received your Series 6 or Series 7 license, you may now deal in securities.
If searching for a position, then it would be to your advantage to list "Studying for Series 63 exam" on a resume to enhance the viability of an employment application. In addition to the sponsorship requirement, candidates must pass a background check and furnish fingerprints.

About The Series 63 License
The FINRA Series 63 license - also known as the Uniform Securities Agent license - is a requirement set by most states for investors to be able to do business in their state. It deals with state-level issues surrounding securities representatives.
After receiving a Series 63 license from the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA), investors can legally perform certain securities transactions. Most investors will need both a Series 63 and a Series 6 license to sell investment-related insurance policies.
The Series 63 exam, which is required to receive a Series 63 license, tests candidates on the requirements of the Uniform Securities Act as well as the ethics and obligations surrounding investors. Both topics compose a significant portion of the exam.State Securities Acts and Related Regulations
The Uniform Securities Act is a basic model for states to follow surrounding securities regulations. This framework helps states protect against securities fraud and enforce state-specific rules. Each state can use the model as a starting point to create their own securities laws - known as blue sky laws.
Before taking their Series 63 exam, candidates should have extensive knowledge of the regulations set by the Uniform Securities Act. Questions covering the act's numerous aspects compose 60 percent of the test.Ethical Frameworks and Fiduciary Obligations
The other 40 percent of the exam will cover various ethical considerations in the field of securities. Candidates should understand how to effectively communicate with clients, ethically receive compensation, handle client funds, deal with conflicts of interest and similar topics surrounding their future obligations.
