Our new website is supposed to be finished (finally) in about a month. As well as a massive upgrade to our web presence, we will have many new features including a chart maker, interviews, recorded lessons and a forum. We will also start digitizing the research library soon. Volunteers who can lovingly handle antique books are needed! Please contact us:

Our exams have been revised to remove a great deal of the mathematical calculations on both the Advanced (formerly called Student) Exam and the Professional Exam. Calculations should be to within 5' of arc for planetary positions, house cups, and declination. The professional exam is open book for the math portion. All exams are proctored.

If you have passed the previous version of the Advanced exam you have the opportunity to be upgraded to the new Professional Exam Certification, but only until the end of September, 2023.

The AFA has an agreement with Kepler College:

A memorandum of understanding has been signed which acknowledges a reciprocity agreement whereby American Federation of Astrologers (AFA) and Kepler College of Astrological Arts & Sciences (Kepler) will work together for the mutual benefit of both organizations.

AFA will grant Advanced Membership status to any graduate of Kepler certificate programs that are equivalent to the advanced exam requirements after the graduate becomes a member of AFA within one year after completing the certificate(s). All previous certificate program graduates who meet the advanced exam requirements are granted the same opportunity until September 30, 2023.

Second, AFA will grant Professional Member status to any graduate of Kepler diploma program that are equivalent to the professional exam requirements after the graduate becomes a member of AFA and sits for a proctored exam that consists of chart calculation within one year after completing the diploma program. All previous diploma graduates who meet the professional exam requirements and sit for a proctored exam that consists of chart calculation are granted the same opportunity until September 30, 2023.

Third, Kepler agrees that it will confirm that a graduate has, in fact, graduated from Kepler with a certificate or certificates and/or a diploma within 60 days of receiving the request from AFA. After Kepler provides confirmation, AFA will proceed with processing the graduates' membership application as appropriate and grant certification status accordingly. Any certificate or diploma graduate who misses the one-year deadline after graduation is not eligible for the opportunity and would have to take the Advanced Member or Professional member examination.
