If you have completed educational requirements at accredited institutions outside the U.S:

  • NASBA International Evaluation Services (NIES) is the only acceptable evaluation service for international transcripts. There are no exceptions.
  • You must request a course-by-course evaluation for the purpose of taking the CPA Exam in Maryland. Any other evaluation will be denied.
  • Education from schools located outside the U.S. with U.S. regional accreditation must be evaluated by NIES.

Payment Coupon

This service allows you to pay the Exam fees via a NASBA Payment Coupon. The NASBA Payment Coupon is sent to you via the contact preference as indicated on your application/registration. If you have not received a NASBA Payment Coupon, you cannot pay the Exam fees via this service.

You need your Payment Coupon and credit card to proceed.
