When are CPA scores released?
Your CPA Exam score release depends on when you took the CPA Exam. Review the schedule above to determine when you can expect your score.
Are the CPA Exam scores always released on one date?
The CPA score release schedule includes targeted dates. Scores should be posted within 48 hours of the CPA release dates. In some cases, scores may be available on NASBA’s website one day prior to the target score release date. On the other hand, some states may require an extra day to process and release exam scores.
What time of day are CPA Exam scores released?
For the most part, scores are released at midnight Eastern Time on the target CPA Exam score release date.
Where can I retrieve my score?
In most states, you can obtain your scores from NASBA’s candidate portal. Candidates in California, Illinois and Maryland, however, must obtain scores from their state’s accountancy board.
How long is my CPA Exam score available to view?
You can only view your CPA Exam score release for the current testing/release window. When you check your scores on the NASBA website, you’ll see a “score available until” date, after which you will no longer be able to view your score or the score notice. Once your CPA Exam score release is available, it’s a good idea to print a copy for your records. Also, after the viewing window has passed, you can still check your scores on the CPA Central website or your state’s board of accountancy website.
Should I wait for my exam score to be released before starting to study my next planned exam section?
We recommend starting your next section prep immediately after sitting for an exam. Don't be afraid to give yourself a little time off, but we don't suggest waiting two or three months for the score. With the 2024 score release dates being limited and more spread out than a regular year, you want to continue making progress towards your CPA licensure. Waiting a couple months before studying could significantly slow your progress.
