On April 24, 2023, NASBA's Board of Directors approved a change to its Uniform Accountancy Act (UAA) Model Rules that increase from 18 months to 30 months the time frame for a CPA candidate to complete the Exam once the candidate passes the first section.
Please be advised that the UAA Model Rules have no immediate effect on state board rules. Current Exam candidates remain under existing rules until, if, and when, the Board to which they applied makes changes.MORE INFO

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”).
