The Jurisdiction Identification number is a unique number assigned by the jurisdiction you apply to for the Uniform CPA Examination. If it’s your first time signing up, you will receive the Jurisdiction ID number after you apply. For the jurisdictions serviced by NASBA’s CPA Examination Services, you will need your Jurisdiction ID each time you apply using the CPA Central Portal.    

The National Identification number is a unique number assigned once your jurisdiction has approved you to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination and submitted an Authorization to Test (ATT) to NASBA’s National Candidate Database.  The National ID number will be the same even if you transfer to another jurisdiction during your Examination process.  

Both numbers are used to confirm candidates’ identities when inquiring about their application status or Examination experience.
