CPA Exam Score Release Timeline
Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the scoring timeline?

A. CPA Exam scores will be released to NASBA following the first month of testing in a window, with subsequent score releases every two weeks for the remainder of the window. 

Q. When can I expect to receive my scores?

A. Scores for the CPA Exam will be released by NASBA to state boards of accountancy based upon the table below. 

Day in Testing Window*  Target Release Date Timeline 
Day 1 - 20 11 business days following
day 20 of the testing window

the close of the testing window
After Close of Window 6 business days after receiving
all scoring data for the testing

Note: Some scores for the BEC section may be released in a subsequent release due to the written communication tasks.

Q. It is past the target date for my score release, and I still do not have my score.  What happened to my score?

A vast majority of the scores will be released on the target date; however, these dates are still targets, not a guarantee.
There are several factors that can influence the score release. First, the target date reflects the day that NASBA distributes scores to state boards of accountancy, and the turnaround required for each state may vary. Secondly, some scores can be delayed due to a scoring inquiry that requires additional psychometric analysis. And finally, some scores in the BEC section might be delayed to a subsequent score release due to additional analysis required for the written communication task. 

Q. What about score releases for candidates testing under the international testing program?

A. The scoring timeline for candidates testing under the international testing program can be found in the International Testing FAQs.

Q. Are there any differences in score release by Exam section (AUD, FAR, REG, BEC)?

A. Yes.  Candidates who take the BEC section may get their scores in a subsequent release due to additional analyses that may be required for the written communication tasks.
