I need to know if the $550 exam fee is required to be payed when application is submitted online at , or if it is possible to complete and submit the application and pay the $550 exam fee after finding out acceptance information. Basically is the 550 fee expected to be paid at the time application is submitted.

Please advise

The fee has to be paid as part of your PMP application. So you cannot "trick" the system by first seeing if your application is accepted and if they say "no" back out without paying. So you have to pay as you apply.

But here is a tip: Become a PMI member FIRST. An individual membership will cost you $129, but members only pay $405 for the PMP application instead of $555. So you are saving a bit of money.
