As CFA® Program transitions to computer-based testing, test center locations and policies will vary based on the level and timing of your exam. In December 2020, Levels I-III will be available in traditional paper-based exam format. Beginning in Feb 2021, all levels of the exam will shift to computer-based testing only.

Paper-Based Testing

CFA® Program exams are offered in over 170 locations around the world

Your test center venue is listed on your exam admission ticket and in your CFA Institute online account. Special instructions regarding parking, lunch options, and other details may be available for your test center.

Computer-Based Testing

CFA® Program computer-based exams are offered in more than 400 locations globally.
  1. Register for your exam first.

  2. Schedule your exam appointment at a secure, proctored test center (login required). Appointments must be scheduled by the deadline (typically 60 days before the start of the exam window). 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. Appointments are based on first-come, first-served basis.

  3. Once scheduled, you can access test center information in your CFA Institute online account. Special instructions regarding parking, lunch options, and other details may be available for your test center.

Test Center Change Requests

Paper-Based Testing

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.

Computer-Based Testing

After registering, you must schedule your exam appointment by the deadline. If you need to reschedule your exam appointment in your exam window, log into your CFA Institute account and click the Manage your Exam link. Test centers have limited seating and requests are processed based on availability. There is a USD 25 fee to reschedule your exam appointment.*

*We recognize that in some locations, the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 is making it difficult to finalize exam schedules, navigate travel restrictions, and secure seating in your preferred location. To help alleviate these inconveniences, we have reduced the USD 250 fee for exam changes to USD 25 for all exams in 2021.
