Depending on your nationality and country of residence, you may be able to undertake the CPA Program for a reduced fee.

Subsidised fees

The Oceania Regional Scheme was established to facilitate nationals of select countries to undertake the CPA Program. It eases the financial burden for eligible individuals by offering subsidies as follows:

  Fee (AUD) 
Membership assessment fee (waived)  $164

CPA Program segment enrolment (each)
50 per cent off the normal enrolment fee (2021)
Associate membership – half year
(Joining date June-December)
Associate membership – full year  $296 


You may be eligible for the subsidised fees if you are a resident national of one of the following countries

  • Cook Islands
  • Federated States of Micronesia
  • Kiribati
  • Marshall Islands
  • Nauru
  • New Caledonia
  • Niue
  • Norfolk Island
  • Palau

Your expression of interest


By submitting this form, you acknowledge that you have read the terms and conditions and consent to your personal information being collected for the purposes stated here.

In circumstances where a scholarship recipient relocates to a country not included under the scheme prior to completing the CPA Program, segment fees revert to the relevant applicable fee for that country.

Potential candidates will be required to take each exam at an examination centre in one of the scheme countries to be eligible for subsidised segment fees. Where an enrolled candidate requests to sit an exam outside of these jurisdictions, it is to be assumed that they are no longer resident in a scheme country and segment fees are to revert to those applicable in the country where they register to sit the exam (that is, full segment fees would apply). In instances where CPA Australia determines that, for logistical reasons, candidates from scheme countries were required to sit exams in non-scheme countries, candidates are to retain eligibility for subsidised segment fees.
