Religious Alternate Date Testing Accommodations

If you have a religious obligation or belief that prevents you from taking the exam on Saturday, we will arrange for you to sit for the exam either on the Sunday or Monday following the regular exam date as indicated below. Requests must be received by CFA Institute by the deadline shown below.

If you received an alternate exam date accommodation based on religious beliefs in the past, you don't need to fill out the form again; however, you will need to let examadmin@cfainstitute.org know that you intend to sit for the exam on the alternate date by the deadline.
