Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

At CFA Institute, the health and safety of our employees, stakeholders, and affiliates around the globe is our top priority.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak remains a very fluid situation, and please be assured that we are monitoring the effects to health, safety, and travel mobility.

We seek to make decisions that: prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved; are informed by data; are fair and equitable in their treatment of all concerned parties; and that are viable and sustainable.

We understand that this remains a stressful and trying situation, and we ask for your understanding as we seek to make decisions in a timely and well-informed manner.

CFA Program Exams

We appreciate this may be a concerning time for candidates. We are carefully tracking pandemic-related restrictions around the globe. If local situations require a change in plans, we will adapt as needed, following local public health policies, and the guidance of our testing partners. Social distancing protocols are implemented at every test center. View the general COVID exam day procedures, which may vary slightly due to local requirements. We and our testing partners will react to specific situations related to the pandemic and inform candidates of our plans as soon as possible.
