So we pay after selecting our eligibility period or we have to pay first and then select our eligibility period?

Payment is the last thing done when filling the form!

Another doubt.

Im still a medical student.

Should I apply for ECFMG certification first through IWA or can I directly apply for step 1 through oasis?

Well, what I know is once you are an IMG the only portal for you is ECFMG through IWA. Registration is not done through oasis.
It doesn't matter wether you are a student or graduate. When filling the forms it would be differentiated.

I copied this from the ECFMG site for u.


International medical students/graduates who wish to apply to ECFMG for examination must submit an Application for ECFMG Certification before they can apply for examination. The Application for ECFMG Certification is an on-line application available through ECFMG's Interactive Web Applications (IWA).

The Application for ECFMG Certification consists of questions that require applicants to confirm their identity, contact information, and graduation from or enrollment in a medical school that is listed in the International Medical Education Directory (IMED). Applicants must also confirm their understanding of the purpose of ECFMG Certification and release certain legal claims. Once an Application for ECFMG Certification has been submitted to ECFMG, it typically remains valid throughout the certification process.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have met the examination requirements for ECFMG Certification and are applying to ECFMG for examination, for example, to retake an exam for the purpose of meeting a time limit imposed by a state medical licensing authority, you are not required to complete the Application for ECFMG Certification.

TO COMPLETE AN APPLICATION FOR ECFMG CERTIFICATION, YOU WILL NEED:

ACCESS TO A PERSONAL COMPUTER (WITH A PRINTER IF YOU WISH TO PRINT A COPY OF THE COMPLETED APPLICATION FOR YOUR RECORDS).

A computer with Internet access. The computer must have one of the following web browsers installed: Microsoft® Internet Explorer 7.0 (or higher) or Mozilla Firefox™ 5.0 (or higher). Both Cookies and JavaScripting must be enabled for the browser that you use. (Cookies and JavaScripting are enabled by default. However, if you need to change these settings, refer to the Help feature of your browser.)

AN E-MAIL ADDRESS.

A USMLE/ECFMG IDENTIFICATION NUMBER AND AN ON-LINE SERVICES PASSWORD (see below for more details).

A VALID CREDIT CARD: We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.

OR
A CHECKING ACCOUNT AT A UNITED STATES BANK: To pay by electronic check, you must have either a valid U.S. Driver's License or a U.S. Social Security Number.
OR
If you have a USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number already, you can also pay in advance by sending a payment to ECFMG using Form 900. Once you have verified that the payment has been received and credited to your ECFMG financial account, you can begin the IWA application process. You can verify the status of your ECFMG financial account on-line using ECFMG's On-line Applicant Status and Information System (OASIS).
If you need to make multiple credit card transactions to pay for an application, you must make these payments to your ECFMG financial account in advance. See Methods of Payment in the ECFMG Information Booklet for instructions.

Before you can begin the Application for ECFMG Certification, you must have your USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number and on-line services password:

If you have never submitted an application to ECFMG, you will need to complete the ECFMG On-line Authentication Process to obtain a USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number. Click here to go to ECFMG's On-Line Authentication Process. You must wait for the Identification Number and a temporary password to be e-mailed to you before you can proceed with the Application for ECFMG Certification.

If you have previously submitted an application to ECFMG, you will need your USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number and password. If you have used ECFMG's OASIS, you already have a password. If you have a USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number but do not have a password, you must complete ECFMG's On-Line Authentication Process and wait for a temporary password to be e-mailed to you before you can proceed with the Application for ECFMG Certification. Click here to go to ECFMG's On-Line Authentication Process.

If you forgot your USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number, you must complete the ECFMG On-line Authentication Process to obtain your number. Click here to go to ECFMG's On-Line Authentication Process. ECFMG will perform a thorough search using the information you provide and, if a USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number exists for you, your ID number will be sent to your e-mail address of record. If no e-mail address is available, your USMLE/ECFMG ID number will be mailed to the current mailing address in your record.

If the system is unable to identify you, your information will be submitted to ECFMG for processing. Once this process is complete, your USMLE/ECFMG Identification Number and a temporary password will be sent to the e-mail address you provided. If you have any questions, please contact ECFMG Applicant Information Services at (215) 386-5900 for assistance.
Before you begin the Application for ECFMG Certification, you should also review the Application for ECFMG Certification Instructions and the IWA Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Instructions for the Application for ECFMG Certification items are available throughout the process. You can also print the instructions for all items at any time. If you have any questions that are not answered in the Application for ECFMG Certification Overview, Instructions, or FAQs, you may contact ECFMG Applicant Information Services between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time in the United States, Monday through Friday, at (215) 386-5900.

You should allow approximately 15 minutes to complete all items in the Application for ECFMG Certification. You must complete all items in one session; you cannot save a partially completed Application for ECFMG Certification.

When you have completed the Application for ECFMG Certification, you will have the opportunity to review all information for accuracy and make any necessary corrections or changes before submitting it. You will also be able to print a copy of the Application for ECFMG Certification for your records. If you need to reprint your Application for ECFMG Certification in the future, you can access it using OASIS.

Once submitted to ECFMG, an Application for ECFMG Certification typically becomes valid immediately, allowing you to apply for examination. A notification will be sent to the e-mail address in your ECFMG record confirming receipt of your Application for ECFMG Certification. You can use OASIS to confirm that you have submitted an Application for ECFMG Certification.
