At the March 9, 2017, meeting the Board considered and approved an amendment to Board Rule 511.80 Granting of Credit that allows a three month extension of CPA exam credits due to the delayed release of exam scores in 2017. The amendment affects applicants who have CPA exam credits that will expire between April 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018. It also provided a three-month extension for applicants who earn CPA exam credit as a result of testing between April 1, 2017 and May 31, 2017. While this amendment is preliminary, we anticipate final approval at the May 2017 Board meeting.
