Test Centers Reopening
Prometric has actively worked with test sponsors to determine whose programs meet the criteria for "essential workforce" as defined by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). For the most up-to-date list of these programs, please click here. Test centers in North America will be operating under strict social distancing guidelines at this time. For a full list of these procedures, please click here.
Candidates who have credit/grades expiring through June 30, 2020, will receive an automatic 90-day extension of credit. These candidates will be identified by NASBA and NASBA will process the extensions.
Continuous testing for U.S. CPA Exam candidates to begin July 1
In response to numerous candidate requests, NASBA announced continuous testing for CPA Exam candidates will begin July 1, 2020. Under the new continuous testing model, candidates will have the ability to take the CPA Exam year-round, without restriction, other than waiting to receive scores from prior attempts of the same section or when there is a major change to the Exam. Continuous testing will replace the existing CPA Exam testing window model, which only permits candidates to test during designated time frames each calendar quarter. You can find more information on these changes here.
About the Exam
Since 1917, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has prepared and graded the CPA Exam, while individual states have established the educational requirements to sit for the Exam. The Exam is administered in a computerized format at Prometric test sites throughout the country during the first two months of every quarter (referred to as “testing windows”).
