NASBA extends CPA exam window to 30 months

By  Michael Cohn, Accounting Today, April 24, 2023

The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy is giving CPA candidates up to two and a half years to complete the CPA exam after passing the first section of the test without losing credit, but individual state boards will still need to agree to the change.

NASBA announced Monday it adopted an amendment to the Uniform Accountancy Act Model Rules allowing the change, which had been eagerly anticipated by exam candidates. The changes came after NASBA’s experience during the pandemic when CPA candidates were granted more flexibility in taking the exam, as well as shortages of young accountants across the profession.
