3 Hidden CFA® Exam Fees You Didn’t Expect

Travel Fees

The CFA® exam is offered in only 170 Mizinda June ndi 70 cities in December around the world. Most of the exam locations are in major metropolitan locations. If you are lucky enough to live by one of the test centers, then travel expenses will be minimal. Komabe, if you need to travel to take the test, you may need to account for gas mileage, plane tickets and/or hotel rooms.


Additional Study Fees

Many candidates use study resources other than those provided by CFA® Institute to help prepare for the exam. Mwachitsanzo, the Kaplan Schweser CFA® Exam study packages range from $379 for the self-study notes to $2,099 for in-person classes and study reviews.

There’s a standard cost to buy the course initially. If you fail the exam or pass the expiration date on your review course, you will have to pay an extra fee to renew it. This is really stupid because you already paid for it once. That’s why I would recommend a study guide like Wiley CFA® that doesn’t have an expiration date. You can use it for as long as you need it to pass the exam. 🙂


Total Costs to Become a CFA®

In sum, the cost to become a CFA® Member can be significant and vary greatly depending on additional ancillary fees. At the very minimum, a Member will spend $2,650, assuming paying early registration fees and one year of annual membership fees.

In another, arguably more realistic scenario, a Member can end up paying over $4,800 for the total cost of the CFA® exam and membership. This is assuming you are paying standard registration fees, one exam re-take fees, some travel fees and purchasing Schweser notes (minimum package) for all three tests.
