How to Qualify and Earn the Title

Eligibility requirements vary from state to state. It is, therefore, important to know state requirements (education, residency, work experience, etc.) to be able to choose where candidates may be eligible to earn their CPA license. Visit the NASBA website to know more about this.

Candidates must pass all four parts of the examination to earn the CPA license. In some states, an Ethics exam needs to be completed apart from the four parts previously mentioned. To pass a section, candidates must score 75 or higher.

Recently, states have added a mandatory requirement of 150 earned units which must be met through academic coursework completed at an accredited institution. Professional training is not acceptable toward these requirements.
