CPA Exam Score Release Schedule
The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) releases scores to candidates and the State Boards of Accountancy based upon the Uniform CPA Exam score release timetables. The score release timetables are updated biannually by The American Institute of Public Accountants (AICPA) and first posted on AICPA Insights and on AICPA’S Website.
With this in mind, we recommend you take the time to review the release dates when planning out your exam dates. This way you’ll know when you can expect to start studying for subsequent sections based on whether or not you passed. For more information on how the CPA exam is scored, click here.

**Due to the change to the Exam, which becomes effective with the 2017 (Q2) testing window, there will be a delay in the release of scores with a single score release for all candidates approximately 10 weeks after the close of the testing window. This delay is necessary to provide sufficient time to statistically validate candidate performance on the newly launched Exam.
Access to CPA Exam Scores
Your CPA Exam score is available online on the NASBA website if your State Board of Accountancy utilizes NASBA’s online score retrieval service. Be sure to check to see if your State Board uses the NASBA online service and if not, where you can find your scores. If you do not receive your scores within the timetables listed, the AICPA requests all CPA Exam candidates to keep the following in mind:
- All dates and times are based on Eastern Standard Time zone.
- For the vast majority of candidate, the AICPA receives the examination data files from Prometric within 24 hours after a candidate complete the Exam.
- The scores for the examination data files received after the AICPA cutoff dates will be in the subsequent scheduled target score release.
- Some candidates who take the BEC section might receive their scores approximately one week following the target release date due to additional analysis that might be required for the written communication tasks.
