Is it possible for PMI to reject my PMP application? If yes, then under which circumstances does PMI usually do that?

Also, what can the project manager do in case his PMP application is rejected? Can he appeal the decision?

The PMP application can be rejected for the following reasons:

- You have submitted an incomplete application.
- You have submitted a complete application but you did not pay for it.
- Your application was audited and you have failed the audit or you didn't supply PMI with the required information in a timely manner.
- You were banned for life from taking PMI exams (this happens when you're caught cheating - check here for more information about this topic: http://www.projectmanagementquestions.com/5973/recourse-after-being-banned-there-similar-certs-available )

According to the PMP Handbook available at PMI.org (http://www.pmi.org/en/Certification/~/media/PDF/Certifications/pdc_pmphandbook.ashx), incomplete applications will not be processed and will be returned.

In addition, applications may be audited.  During audits you will be asked to send copies of documents or verification of statements.  I believe the current application also includes references and they may be contacted.  You will have 90 days to respond to the audit and your 1 year exam period will not begin until you have passed the audit.  Incomplete responses are also subject to returns/failure of audit.

Other than this, I am not aware of rejections of applications.
