Advisory Evaluation Report

The NASBA Advisory Evaluation is an efficient and cost-effective way of ensuring students know which courses and number of hours are required to sit for the Uniform CPA Exam, placing them on the right path to earning their CPA designation.

The Advisory Evaluation Report is intended only for guidance with educational courses and CANNOT be used to apply for the CPA Examination or Licensure.
