How Are CPA Exam Score Release Dates Determined?

Your target release dates are based on two factors:

  1. When you sat for your CPA section

  2. When the AICPA receives your test data from the Prometric Center

The dates above will give you the most up-to-date estimate for when your scores will be released.

Where Do I Find My CPA Exam Scores?

Once you have found the estimated date your scores will be released, you will need to login to the NASBA website to access your scores. NASBA releases your scores to your state board of accountancy, but be aware that not all boards use the online score retrieval service, so check with your state board for support on where to find your CPA scores.

Have You Failed A Section Of The CPA Exam?

Don't worry you are not alone! Only 20% of CPA candidates escape unscathed by the CPA exam. In fact you should know that the CPA exam is NOT an IQ exam but a mental and physical one.

I have seen 4.0 valevictorians fail multiple times and give up on the CPA exam.

In over to mentally and physically overcome this "beast" of an exam you need a proven study method and a way to recover from failure.
