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 a 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 a 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
  • 1-2 years of accounting experience

Service Availability

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

Arkansas Guam Kentucky Michigan Montana
New Hampshire Oklahoma Virginia Washington Washington 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.


    Domestic Experience Verification: $600
    International Experience Verification: $800
