I am a Re-examination candidate. Am I required to submit a Letter of Good Standing?

Yes. All candidates are required to submit a Letter of Good Standing to NASBA each time they apply. An original copy of the letter is required to be sent directly to NASBA from the Institute.

I have read the Candidate Guide but I still do not know if I meet the qualifications.

Please contact your professional credential institute to verify your eligibility.

Since the IQEX is now just the Regulation section of the Uniform CPA Examination, can I apply for the Uniform CPA Examination and just take Regulation instead of applying for the IQEX?

No. Candidates who apply for the Uniform CPA Examination must pass all four sections of the examination in order to qualify for licensure. These candidates must also apply for the examination through a specific jurisdiction and must meet that jurisdiction’s education requirements.

What if a conflict arises after I have scheduled an appointment to take the examination?

You may cancel or reschedule your appointment by contacting Prometric. There is no fee for canceling or rescheduling an appointment at least 30 days in advance. If you cancel or reschedule between five and 30 days before your appointment, you must pay a fee directly to Prometric. If you reschedule within five days of your appointment, you will be required to pay the full Prometric testing fee for the section you are rescheduling. See the Candidate Guide for additional information regarding these fees. You cannot make any changes to your appointment less than 24 hours in advance. You will have to contact the Board/agency to which you applied originally to register again.

What are the fees for the examination?

The application fee is $835.00 USD.

Applicants from other countries must apply to state boards using the same criteria and procedures applied to U.S. CPA candidates. The only exceptions will be for qualified accountants from countries that have a reciprocal agreement negotiated through the U.S. International Qualification Appraisal Board (IQAB), and accepted by the state board of accountancy.

Are special accommodations available for IQEX?

In accordance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, examination administration accommodations are available, should you qualify. Please download the IQEX Testing Accommodations Request Form for more information.
