The AICPA and NASBA switched to continuous testing for the CPA exam in 2020. Rather than scores only being released once every quarter, CPA exam scores will now be released on a rolling or continuous basis through the year. CPA exam scores are released at least once and month, with some months having CPA exam scores released twice! So why is this important for you to know?
It is important because you can plan your CPA exam testing schedule around the next score release date. There is nothing worse than sitting for a specific section of the CPA exam, and then having to wait several weeks or longer to get your score back! Even if you fail a section, you can now plan to sit for your retake as soon as you can get a testing date at your local Prometric Center.
As an FYI, the AICPA and NASBA release the CPA exam scores for some states the night before the scheduled release date (typically 8pm EST). Be ready and check the NASBA Twitter feed as they typically announce when the scores will be released!
Once you sit for a section of the CPA at Prometric, Prometric sends the exam data files to the AICPA within 24 hours. Once the AICPA has the score information, they share the score information with NASBA. NASBA then releases the score information through the CPA candidate portal based on the score release dates (detailed below).
The table below is the expected CPA exam score release date for CPA candidates that sit for a section of the CPA exam from July 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022.
