How Do You Take the CPA Exam?

If you have received your Notice to Schedule (NTS), it is time for you to take your CPA Exam

Make sure you are aware of the exam testing windows because the exam is not given at the end of each calendar quarter to allow for the maintenance of systems and databank. It is important that you schedule the exam sections in a way that enables you to complete all sections of the exam in time, without losing credit for a section that you may have previously passed.

To complete all four sections of the CPA Exam, you have an 18-month period. You can take any or all sections of the exam in any order during any testing window. However, you are not allowed to take the same section more than once during any one testing window.

Once you’ve set your mind on when to take the exam, you will need to schedule your exam. The exam can be taken at any one of the authorized Prometric test centers in the United States or designated international locations, whether or not the test center is located within the borders of the jurisdiction where you are seeking your initial license. Note: your Board of Accountancy will inform you if there are any restrictions on the locations where you can take the exam. The most current list of test centers may be found on the Prometric website.

The easiest and quickest way to schedule an exam appointment is on the Prometric website.

Another option to schedule your CPA Exam is to call Prometric’s Candidate Services Call Center at 800-580-9648. The call center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (ET). You must schedule a separate appointment for each section of the exam you are planning to take, and it is not necessary to make all appointments in one call.

With either option, make sure you have your NTS in front of you. You will be required to provide the customer service representative with various pieces of information from the NTS.

Once your appointment(s) is scheduled, you will receive an email confirmation. If you do not receive an email confirmation, please visit the Prometric website to print a confirmation of your appointment.
