CPA Exam Score Credit Relief Initiative

At the October 20, 2023, Board meeting the Board voted unanimously to adopt the CPA Exam Score Credit Relief Initiative proposed by NASBA. This initiative was formulated in response to the National Health Emergency and the hardship it placed on CPA Exam candidates. 

The Board adopted the initiative “en masse” for all passing Exam section scores for which credit was/will be expired between January 30, 2020, and December 31, 2023. For passing section scores during that time frame, which have not been subsequently replaced by new credits for the same section, the credit expiration dates will be extended to June 30, 2025.  

Please be patient, while our Exam Administrator, CPA Exam Services (CPAES), updates the Exam score system to reflect the new expiration dates. This is a large update, and they will be working on it as quickly as possible.

If you already have a Notice to Schedule (NTS) for a previously passed section for which credit will be restored, please email They will work with you to complete the necessary steps related to that NTS. 

The Board thanks the Exam candidates who participated in the conversation at the Board meeting. To all Exam candidates, we recognize your hard work and dedication, and in advance thank you for your future service to the CPA profession.
