Test Center Information
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.
CFA® Program exams are offered in over 170 locations around the world.
Your test center venue is listed on your exam admission ticket (available approximately four weeks prior to the exam date) and in your CFA Institute online account. Special instructions regarding parking, lunch options, and other details may be available for your test center.
Register for your exam first, then self-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). Note that scheduling is not currently available for the August and November administrations. We will contact registrants for those exams when scheduling opens.
Appointments are based on first-come, first-served basis.
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
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.
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.
