Taking the Exam - Public Accountancy
The Board will accept third party credits providing they are listed on an accredited college/university transcript, as noted in the Maryland Educational Requirements. The transcript must list the course title and the number of credits assigned to each course. In addition, we must receive the transcript from the third party, showing the courses by title and credits earned or score earned.
The board will only be accepting applications from individuals who have graduated from a college or a university and have earned at least a baccalaureate degree on or before today's date.
Applicants must request that transcripts include the type of degree conferred and the date of graduation.

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.
