Future CPAs

For students, educators, and anyone preparing to take the CPA Exam.

Presented by:
Pennsylvania CPA Foundation
A CPA license opens the door to unlimited career opportunities. The PICPA has resources for high school and college students, recent grads, and educators on accounting and finance topics that will help you discover your next step.

To comply with CDC guidance to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 disease, all Prometric sites are closed and are expected to reopen April 16.

The Pennsylvania State Board of Accountancy has adopted the following recommendations from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy:
  • Any CPA candidate that has expiring credits for exam sections between now and June 30 will receive an extension until Sept. 30, 2020.
  • All Notices to Schedule (NTS) expiring between April 1 and June 30 will be extended to Sept. 30, 2020.
Affected candidates will receive communication from Prometric and the State Board.

NASBA, AICPA, and Prometric have made the decision to invoke an emergency testing period to provide additional testing opportunities. As part of this procedure, the 2020 Q2 testing window will be extended from June 10, 2020, to June 30, 2020.
