One of NASBA’s goals is to make the CPA credential available to both domestic and international accounting professionals around the world, and we recognize that many applicants for licensure have difficulty finding an actively licensed CPA to sign off on their experience requirement.

The Experience Verification service is our latest effort to address the needs of both domestic and international licensure applicants by providing access to an interview with an actively licensed U.S. CPA, while also conducting a thorough authentication of the applicant’s work experience.

What do you need?

In order to begin the Experience Verification service, applicants must have:

  • Passed the CPA Examination or International Qualification Examination (IQEX)
  • Met the Board’s educational requirements for licensure, and
  • At least 2,000 hours of work experience within the time frame specified by the jurisdiction

Service Availability

NASBA will offer Experience Verification for licensure in the following jurisdictions:

    ArkansasGuamKentuckySouth CarolinaMichiganMontana
    New HampshireVirginiaWashingtonWashington D.C.

      Individuals who sat for the CPA Exam in jurisdictions other than the jurisdictions listed above, may be eligible to transfer their scores to these jurisdictions and apply/obtain licensure.

      Individuals applying for the IQEX exam in one of these jurisdictions, who need to submit post-licensure work experience with their IQEX application, may use this service.
