CFA® Exam Test Center Updates

×
  • We are actively working to add capacity to 2021 exam locations. If you do not see available appointments in your desired exam location, please continue to check back through the scheduling function for availability to be added in the coming days.

    Check for availability

Next Exam: December 2020

Updated 3 December 2020

CFA Institute has determined that it will not administer exams in the locations listed below. Please note that they are unavailable for all candidates, including those who requested a Religious Alternate Date (RAD) or Disability Accommodation. The reason we will not administer in these locations is included in parentheses with each listing.

We will email impacted candidates within 24 hours to alert them of their test center closure. Please wait for further instruction.

We understand your concern that 2021 exams may reach capacity. Unlike the paper-based exams, which required us to serve all candidates in one day, the computer-based exams provide more exam day options, along with smaller, more convenient settings. This allows us to respond more easily in areas with greater demand. We are actively working to add capacity to 2021 exam locations. If you do not see available appointments in your desired exam location, please continue to check back through the scheduling function for availability to be added in the coming days.

For the latest information on upcoming exams, please visit the CFA Exam Updates page.

Test center change requests for the December 2020 exam have closed. There will be no exceptions and we cannot make special accommodations of any kind. 

Please stay abreast of government and health advisories in your test area. CFA Institute will adhere to the guidance of local governments. We plan to hold exams in any location where we can meet the applicable public health and safety requirements.
