1. Review the exam requirements
2. Submit the exam application + enroll in your Surgent CPA Review course
3. Request and forward transcripts. After eligibility is verified, the Board will send an Authorization to Test (ATT) to the candidate and to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) for processing through the National Candidate Database. The ATT is valid for 90 days.
4. Pay the exam fees. After the candidate application has been processed, a payment coupon will be sent to the applicant. The exam fees for all four parts will total $734.10 and are payable to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) within a 90-day period. Once payments are received by NASBA, a Notice to Schedule (NTS) will be issued to the candidate.
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 www.prometric.com/cpa. You can take the exam at a site in Eugene, Milwaukie, Salem, or any other Prometric location that is convenient to you.
