Academic Credential Evaluation Service
After successfully passing all 4 sections of the CPA Exam:
NASBA Experience Verification
NASBA recognizes that many CPA applicants have difficulty finding a licensed CPA to sign off on their experience requirement for licensure. The NASBA Experience Verification service not only provides those seeking licensure access to an interview with a CPA, but also conducts a thorough authentication of the applicant’s work experience.
National Qualification Appraisal Service (NQAS)
CredentialNet, a service of the NQAS, is an Individual Substantial Equivalency evaluation service for the purposes of mobility and/or reciprocal licensure.
A CPA who is seeking a reciprocal license and/or practice privilege may obtain an Individual Substantial Equivalency evaluation from NASBA. Individual Substantial Equivalency evaluations are offered through NASBA’s CredentialNet service, and should be obtained prior to application to the Board. After the Individual Substantial Equivalency evaluation is completed, NASBA will send a report to the Board indicating Individual Substantial Equivalency status.
The states listed below accept documentation from CredentialNet for the reciprocal licensing and/or practice privilege notification process. Please click the appropriate state below to learn more.
If you are a CPA with an active license from a state deemed non-substantially equivalent and need your individual CPA qualifications evaluated for the purposes of mobility, you may submit an application to CredentialNet. The Substantial Equivalency Evaluation report is accepted as verification in most states.
