If you meet the requirements, complete the Application Form package available online and submit the application, with the $110 fee, to the Wyoming Board of Certified Public Accountants. The application package will also include a section in which you will indicate the parts of the exam for which you intend to sit. At this time you should also begin planning your study approach by making inquiries into CPA reviews available in your area. The Becker CPA Review offers classes live or online to accommodate the needs of all candidates.
Contact any educational institutions attended and request that transcripts be forwarded to the State Board for their evaluation. If you do not expect any problems in processing your application it is best to make plans to start your review at this time. The Becker CPA Review will significantly increase your chances of passing the exam.
After the candidate application has been processed, a payment coupon will be sent to the applicant. The exam fees for all four parts will total $709.20 and are payable to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) within a 90-day period. Once NASBA has received full payment, a Notice to Schedule will be issued to the candidate.
Your NTS allows you to start scheduling your exams. You can sit for the exam parts in any sequence so you can plan your reviews to coincide with your exam scheduling. The most efficient approach is to sit for two parts in each exam window; however, exam fees paid for parts not taken are not refundable. Exam times are scheduled with Prometric and can be set up online at www.prometric.com/cpa. You can take the exam at a site in Casper or any other Prometric location that is convenient to you.
