Many schools are switching to a pass/fail grading system this semester. Since Pennsylvania is one of NASBA's CPA Examination Services (CPAES) states, we checked in with Pat Hartman, and she said since Pennsylvania does not require a certain GPA to sit for the exam, pass/fail is not a problem. Let us know if you have any follow-up questions or need additional information.

Exam Credit Extensions
Due to the COVID-19 emergency disaster declaration in Pennsylvania, a waiver was granted on 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 180 days from the end of the emergency.

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