CPA Evolution Updates

The CPA Evolution initiative is transforming the CPA licensure model to recognize the rapidly changing skills and competencies that accounting requires today and will require in the future. It is a joint effort of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

ICN-newThe AICPA and NASBA released the Accounting Program Curriculum Gap Analysis Report, showing major gaps in accounting education in several crucial areas. Access the report now.

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 who were given extensions will have exam credits that now expire on Dec. 12, 2021. NASBA is working to update candidate dashboards to reflect the new expiration dates.

To request this extension:
Please email the State Board at st-accountancy@pa.gov and include an explanation of your request, which sections and why, and a copy of most recent score notice or screen-shot of dashboard which shows expiration dates.

Online Learning Resources

Many of these services are offering free resources at this time.

 
Many schools switched to a pass/fail grading system during the pandemic. Pennsylvania does not require a certain GPA to sit for the exam, so pass/fail grading is not a problem. Let us know if you have any follow-up questions or need additional information.
