Payments for print curriculum orders are non-refundable once the order has been placed.

Deferrals to the next available exam are considered on a case-by-case basis, and only in the event of one of the following, impacting the candidate or a member of his/her immediate family:

  • ·         life-threatening illness (candidate or immediate family member) in the exam window;
  • ·         death of a candidate's immediate family member;
  • ·         mandatory military service (candidate only) in the exam window;
  • ·         pregnancy (candidate only); or

The candidate's immediate family is defined as only the candidate's parent, grandparent, sibling, spouse/domestic partner, or child. Deferral requests must be received by CFA Institute prior to or within 10 US business days after the exam window. Decisions on deferrals are final and are at the sole discretion of CFA Institute. Candidates awarded a deferral are responsible for all applicable new curriculum charges.
