Applying for the Uniform CPA Examination
Before applying for the Uniform CPA Examination through CPA Examination Services (CPAES), please familiarize yourself with this jurisdiction’s education requirements to determine if you are eligible to apply as a first-time candidate. You are also advised to read The Candidate Bulletin before submitting applications online. You may apply for one or more sections of the examination at a time; however, you are advised to only apply for a section of the examination if you are ready to take it within the next six months.
You may register online with a credit card. To apply for the CPA Examination online, you will be asked to create a user account the first time you use CPA Central (our online application tool). If you’ve previously applied for the CPA Examination outside of our online application tool (via paper application or other method), you will need to import your previous application information. To do this, you will need to know the jurisdiction in which you sat for the examination as a first-time candidate, and your Jurisdiction ID Number. Registering for a user account will allow you to apply for the exam, maintain your current information, view your scores, and check your application status. Do not register for more than one user account.
