If I do not have a U.S. Bachelor's Degree or equivalent, can I still qualify for registration in the CFA program?

A:

CFA Institute indicates that a minimum of 4 years of qualifying work experience may allow an applicant without a Bachelor's degree to qualify. Details such as dates and places employed, as well as a description of job duties, must be given in full on the Registration & Enrollment Form.

A combination of university and/or college education and qualified work experience may also allow you to register in the CFA program without a Bachelor's degree. Detailed information on work experience and education completed must be included on the Registration & Enrollment Form.

Remember: If you do not have a Bachelor's degree before the date of your first exam, or do not have a total of 4 years of university education and/or qualified work experience, CFA Institute will cancel your registration. And, if you have already written the exam, they will void your exam results. Furthermore, they do NOT offer refunds to individuals who have had their registration cancelled.
