CFA Exam Registration

The cost of the exam varies by when you register—with early birds getting a better rate. Please note that there is an additional one-time only $450 enrollment fee the first time you register for the Level I exam, and for the computer-based exams, there is a $25 rescheduling fee if changes are made after initial scheduling (see calendars above for rescheduling deadline).

The 2021 CFA Exam registration fees for each deadline—early and standard—are listed below.
