American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

ACS Chapters CME Fees

Beginning on July 1, 2019, the following fees are in effect for Chapters:

  • Late Fee: $100 late fee if any of the deadlines related to the CME Credit Process are missed. Please note that this is a one-time fee of $100 (not $100 for each missed deadline).
  • Enduring Materials: For journals and internet-based enduring materials, the first year of accreditation is free of charge. The ACCME allows that the resource can be made available to learners for CME credit for a period of up to three years. If a chapter decides to post the enduring material for credit for a second year, a $200 accreditation fee will be applied to the chapter. If the chapter decides to make the educational activity available for a third year, a $150 accreditation fee will be applied.

Please note that all fees stated above are non-refundable. Please contact the Continuous Professional Development Accreditation team at with any questions related to CME-related fees for ACS Chapters.
