CPA Exam Scheduling

The Board sends an email notification to the applicant when the Eligibility Application is approved. You will have only 180 days from the date your application is approved to pay NASBA the examination fees for the section for which you are approved, schedule with Prometric, and take the section of the exam.

You should pay the NASBA exam fee as soon as possible so that the Notice to Schedule (NTS) is available. The NTS lists the section that you are approved to take and your unique section ID. An examination appointment cannot be scheduled without a valid NTS. You are required to take a printed copy of the NTS with you to the exam.

A CPA Exam candidate with a valid NTS may schedule to take the section at a Prometric Test Center in the United States, a US territory, or at an international Prometric test center established by NASBA. Information will be provided on the NTS to assist the applicant in contacting Prometric to schedule an examination.

When the NTS is received, verify that all information is correct and that the name appearing matches EXACTLY the name on the identification documents that will be used during check-in at the testing center. IF IT DOES NOT MATCH, IMMEDIATELY CONTACT THE BOARD TO REQUEST A CORRECTION. A CPA Exam candidate will not be allowed to enter the testing center if the name of the identification documents does not exactly match the name on the NTS.

Applicants with approved testing accommodations should contact Prometric to select the date, time, and location for testing in one of the following ways:
