When Are the 2024 CPA Exam Score Release Dates?

Official CPA Exam score release dates are updated yearly by the AICPA and sent to NASBA, which then releases all scores to candidates and state boards.

In 2024, the AICPA is temporarily suspending continuous testing to allow for standard setting thanks to the new CPA Evolution exam changes. Refer to our chart below to find all 2024 CPA Exam score release dates.

CPA Exam Score Release Quick Facts

  • The AICPA typically announces the score release dates for the first half of a new year in December of the previous year and the second half by June of that year.
  • Prometric sends your exam data files to the AICPA within 24 hours after you complete your exam section.
  • The AICPA sends your scores to NASBA on the target release date. All scores for that release date should be posted within 48 hours on NASBA’s candidate portal.
  • All candidates’ scores may not be released at the same time. Candidates who test on the same day may receive scores at different times due to differences in necessary quality control procedures.
  • If you believe an error was made in scoring your exam, you can take advantage of a score review and appeal process, which is available in many jurisdictions.
  • You can only view released scores on your NASBA account within the current testing window, so we recommend printing the score notice for your records as soon as it’s available.
  • If you received a failing score and need to retake the exam, it may take up to five days from when your score has been posted for that section to fully close.
  • Continue to check the online application to see when the section re-opens to re-register.

When Does My CPA Exam Score Expire?

As of 2024, you are required to pass all four CPA Exam sections within an 18 to 30-month period depending on your state jurisdiction. The clock starts on the day you sit for your initial exam with a passing score. Credit for passing expires 18 to 30 months from your exam day—not the day you received your score.

If you do not pass all four exam sections within your required period starting from passing your initial exam, you then have to pass that initial exam again.

For example, maybe you passed your FAR CPA Exam, then your AUD CPA Exam a few months later, and then the discipline section. However, when it comes to taking the REG CPA Exam, maybe you waited until the day before your FAR credit expired—and you didn’t pass. This means you now have to retake the FAR exam in addition to still needing to pass the REG exam. Your new window starts on the day you sat for, and passed, the AUD exam.

To avoid this happening, pay particular attention to the expiration dates included on your score notice and allow time for retakes.

What Is the CPA Exam Score Release Process?

As mentioned previously, the AICPA typically announces score release dates for the first half of a new year in December of the previous year and the second half by June of that year.

This score release process goes as follows after you take your exam:

  1. For most candidates, Prometric sends exam data files to the AICPA within 24 hours after testing has finished.
  2. The AICPA will send the scores to NASBA. This is the target score release date noted in the schedule.
  3. All scores for that “release date” should be posted within 48 hours from when NASBA started receiving the scores. Exam data files received after the AICPA cutoff dates will result in subsequent scheduled target score release dates.

What Are the Factors That Determine CPA Exam Score Release Dates?

A few factors that determine CPA Exam score release dates include:

  • The date you took your exam
  • How long Prometric takes to send exam data files
  • When NASBA receives the exam data files from AICPA
