Score Release Timeline for the July/August (Q3’12) and October/November (Q4’12) testing windows

The timetable below is for the July/August and October/November 2012 testing windows to help you plan your testing schedule.

Scores for the Uniform CPA Exam will be released by NASBA to state boards of accountancy based upon the target score release dates listed in the table below. Please be advised that some state boards of accountancy require at least one day beyond the published target dates listed in the table to process and release exam scores.

The timetable applies to candidates who have tested in domestic testing locations. The scores for candidates who have tested in international locations are usually released one day later than the target release date.

* Day that the test results are received by the AICPA

Note: “Day in Testing Window” refers to the date AICPA receives the test result, not the test date. Additionally, some candidates who take the BEC section might receive their scores approximately one week following the target release date due to additional analysis that might be required for the written communication tasks. Scores are generally released during regular business hours.
