Reader’s Question: Can I change my CFA exam location?

Yes. You can change your CFA exam test center by logging in on the CFA Institute website and selecting the “My CFA” tab. This has to be done before the deadline, which is a couple months before your scheduled exam.

How do I Know the Exact Location?

We try to keep this list up to date, but it is best if you can double check with link to CFA Institute website (link below). Also, since exam sites may be different from year to year, you can only find out the exact address when you receive your admission ticket.
