INFORMATION FOR EVERYONE
The AICPA and NASBA report the examination scores to the Board on a candidate-by-candidate basis and by examination section. The Board notifies each examination candidate by e-mail when each exam score is received.
Note: Passage of the Uniform CPA Examination does not mean an individual is licensed to practice certified public accountancy. Successful candidates must meet business-related education and qualifying practical experience before qualifying for licensure. To check whether an individual is licensed by the Board, check the CPA License Search on this website.
