Registering for Exam

What are the required steps for a successful CFA exam registration and scheduling?

Registering for your CFA exam is now a two-step process.  


Step 1:  Enroll in the CFA exam through the CFA website


Step 2: After you complete the registration process and your payment is processed, you will see the “schedule your exam” option in your CFA Program tile. This will take you to the Prometric scheduling tool where you will be presented with available testing centers with dates and times. You must complete this step by the scheduling deadline. If you do not receive a confirmed date and time, you are not yet successfully scheduled for an exam.


Who will provide information about my exam?

Prometric: Once you have chosen your exam date and test center location, Prometric will send you an appointment confirmation email, keep you apprised of any pertinent scheduling changes and tell you of location-specific situations. Use this link to confirm your appointment details. 

If you are concerned about a change or cancellation message you received from Prometric, please contact
Prometric directly.  

CFA Institute: CFA Institute will provide you with a series of emails containing basic information about the exam, the resources we will make available to you, and how to use these resources. As the exam grows closer, CFA Institute will send reminders about mock exams, general exam policies and other considerations.
