      Hi, I was registered for CFA Program last week with the awarded scholarship, and firstly I’m using the “pay by invoice” method, after that I decided to change it to credit card payment so that I canceled the invoice and register again, but then my scholarship was not reflected at the checkout session when I register the second time, and it showed the original price.

      I have contacted the CFA Customer Service department few times but didn’t get any reply from them.

      I’m worrying that I won’t get any reply from them until I miss the registration and scholarship deadline. Is it possible for me to just proceed with the payment using the invoice issued during my first-time registration? Although it is not matching with my account now, since after I cancel the previous registration, currently my account showed the original price.

      That sounds like a tech issue – unfortunately with the implementation of the new CFA CBT format and logistics it’s a little manic right now so that might be why you’re still waiting on a response.

      We’ll reach out to our contact with CFA Institute and see if they can help out, stay tuned!

        Hi, I was registered for CFA Program with the awarded scholarship, and i tried paying with my card but i was unable to do that so, i had to log out and get another card,  i tried logging today to pay but then my scholarship was not reflected at the checkout session when I register the second time, and it showed the original price.

        I have reached the CFA institute and my local directorate but my fear is that it will take days before they respond and this will past the deadline 30th june, 2021.

        I am so worried about this because i do not know the fastest route to do this.

      Hi @yiling, CFA Institute have come back with a response. You’ll need to get your account reset:

      The candidate must contact the GCC directly by emailing info@cfainstitute.org to assist with resetting the account.

      Please ensure the candidate is providing the following information in order to resolve the issue.

      Name

      Email address

      Partner ID#

      Which scholarship awarded

      You should hopefully get it reset in time before the early registration deadline. Hope this helps!

      I have been facing a problem when redeeming my access scholarship. I tried to register for Feb 2022 and at the time of payment it shows the original price which is $1,150. Does anyone know how to solve this?

      Same issue happen to me. Can i know whether there is a toll free number to call in to speed up the process? Because the toll free numbers for Malaysia region provided in the CFA website is unavailable.

      Anyone could help with it?

        Try calling their US number with an online service. I used Google Hangouts to call the US for free – not sure if it still works though. A quick search online should tell you how to do this from Malaysia.
