CIPM Admission and Appointment Policy
View the general exam day procedures, which may vary slightly due to local requirements. All candidates must follow these instructions, or you will not be admitted into the testing room.
You are responsible for scheduling your exam appointment by the published deadline for your exam window. Appointments are first-come, first-served and appointment availability will vary by test center. If you fail to schedule your appointment or fail to sit for the exam, your exam fees are non-refundable, non-deferrable, and non-transferable.
Any appointment reschedule must be made by the published deadline. There is a US$25 fee for rescheduling.
You agree that if you arrive late for your appointment you may be refused admission. If you are refused admission, your exam fees are non-refundable, and non-transferable. CFA® Institute recommends that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
If there is a disruption in your exam (e.g. technical or environmental) but you are able to continue testing, you must. If you decide to leave the test center, CFA Institute will not approve a rescheduling of your exam appointment or deferral of your exam registration.
