We also now help candidates keep track of these dates via our constantly-updated CFA Calendar, which will always contain the latest relevant CFA dates for all exams.

How do the registration fees vary across the three deadlines?

As Mike recommends, you should always aim to register early, and the latest by the second deadline, which for the June 2016 CFA exams is the 17th of February 2016. By the final deadline, there is a double-whammy of facing a high fee, and a very short deadline to study for the actual exam.

The fee breakdown by deadline for the June 2016 exams is as below. You can see how the exam fee increases sharply after the second deadline (plus you’ll have a lot less time to prepare)!

Deadline (Eastern Time)
1st-Time Enrollment Fee
Exam Fee
23 Sep 2015, 23:59 ET
US$450
US$650
17 Feb 2016, 23:59 ET
US$450
US$860
16 Mar 2016, 23:59 ET
US$450
US$1,280

What’s this ‘1st-Time Enrolment Fee’?

This is the fee that’s only applicable if you’re new to the CFA program. If this is your first time registering for a CFA exam ever, then you’ll have to pay this fee, otherwise you don’t.

Do I get print curriculum books with my registration?

No.

Your registration fee includes the e-version of the curriculum, plus practice tests, mock exams and the CFA Institute’s study planner (you can also create your own using Sophie’s guide here.)

If you’d like your own print curriculum, you’ll be able to buy it during the registration checkout process for US$150 + shipping. You can also buy it post-registration if you like.

I have another question. Can I get a response from you guys?

You can! We know that pre-registration is a period of confusion and possibly many questions for a lot of our readers. If you have any question at all, always remember that you can reach us at the 300 Hours Forum. No question is too small, and we will always help any candidate that reaches out for help!

Can I add this to my calendar easily?

Yes! Remember that you can always find all relevant confirmed dates in our CFA Calendar, which can be found on the sidebar of this blog, our Forum and on its own page. You can also add this constantly-updated calendar to your own personal calendar using the instructions here, or the buttons below:
