CFA Institute offers to candidates and future candidates various fees for their enrollment, depending on when do they enroll the program. If you enroll sooner you can save up to USD 465. Besides, you also get extra time for preparation.
CFA Exam Level 1 in December 2013
Currently all deadlines for December 2013 passed and you cannot enroll the program (and register for the Level 1 exam for December 2013) any more. You will be able to register for the December 2014 exam sometimes in the first quarter of 2014. The first deadline (with the most favorable fees) will most probably be in the middle of March, the second deadline in the middle of August.
CFA Exam in June 2014 (L1, L2 and L3)
The first deadline for the enrollment passed on the 25th of September. Of course you can still enroll the program and/or register for the exam until March 12, 2014. However, if you decided to enroll it, you can save USD 370 if you do it until February 12 which is the second deadline for the enrollment. If you enroll by then you will pay total fee of USD 1,240. If you do it after February 12 but before March 12 you will have to pay USD 1,610.
CFA Institute has brought up a new policy regarding printed curriculum for all 2014 candidates. Namely, the electronic version of curriculum is included in the above mentioned prices (and you cannot exclude it), but if you want printed curriculum you have to pay additional USD 150 + shipping cost (which varies across countries).
We would suggest all the candidates to start preparing for their CFA exam even before, but not later than February 12th. The final deadline for enrollment in our opinion this is not only the most expensive option but also not advisable deadline for the start of your preparation.
