Notice to Schedule (NTS) Extensions

Candidates with NTS expiration dates between April 1, 2020, and Dec. 30, 2020, will be extended until Dec. 31, 2020.

Please review NASBA's NTS extensions.

Exam Credit Extensions

Due to the COVID-19 emergency disaster declaration signed by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on March 6, 2020, a waiver was granted of the requirement that CPA candidates must complete all parts of the CPA Exam within an 18-month period. Candidates whose exam credits expire during the time of the emergency declaration will be granted an extension which lasts for the duration of the emergency plus an additional 180 days from the end of the emergency.

Affected candidates will receive communication from Prometric and the state board.
