CFA Exam Dates, Cost, and Registration Fees

Registration costs vary depending on when you decide to register for the exam. Please note, there is a one-time enrollment fee of USD 450 the first time you register for the Level 1 exam. Take care when scheduling your computer-based exam appointment, as there is a USD 25 rescheduling fee if you wish to reschedule your exam appointment in your exam window.*

*CFA Institute recognizes 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, CFA has reduced the USD 250 fee for exam changes to USD 25 for all exams in 2021.
