Schedule and Sit for the CPA Exam
After receiving a Notice to Schedule (NTS), set up a testing appointment as soon as possible. The earlier you apply, the more likely you will get your preferred location, date, and time. Each NTS is valid for six months from the date issued. Tests must be schedule at least five days in advance, and walk-ins are not allowed.

Personal Identification Requirements

- Each form of identification must have your signature and must not be expired.
- If you do not present acceptable identification, you will not be allowed to take your examination.
The CPA Exam used to be restricted to the first two months of each quarter plus the 10th day of each blackout month (March, June, September, December). That has changed. Continuous Testing for CPA Exam candidates began July 1, 2020. Under the new Continuous Testing model, candidates will have the ability to take the exam year-round, without restriction, other than waiting to receive scores from prior attempts of the same section or when there is a major change to the exam. Continuous Testing replaces the testing-window model, which only permitted candidates to test during designated time frames.
