Alabama CPA Exam Application Process

1. Review the exam requirements.

2. Submit the exam application + enroll in Surgent CPA Review.

3. Request and forward transcripts.

Contact any educational institutions attended and request that transcripts be forwarded to CPA Examination Services for their evaluation. If you do not expect any problems in processing your application, this is a great time to get started with the Surgent CPA Review program.

4. Pay the exam fees.

After receiving the required information, CPA Examination Services will issue your Authorization to Test (ATT) to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). You will receive a Notice to Schedule (NTS) which is good for six months; however, since every third is non-testing, the NTS covers four testing months.

5. Schedule your exam.

Your NTS allows you to start scheduling your exams. You can sit for the exam parts in any sequence so you can plan your reviews to coincide with your exam scheduling. The most efficient approach is to sit for two parts in each exam window; however, exam fees paid for parts not taken are not refundable. Exam times are scheduled with Prometric and can be set up online at You can take the exam at a site in Brookfield, Madison, or any other Prometric location that is convenient to you.
