Scheduling the CPA Exam
The process of scheduling your CPA exam sections includes several steps and is subject to some limitations. Use the information below to assist you when planning your CPA exam schedule.
Notice to Schedule
Once you're deemed eligible to take the exam, you can apply for a specific exam section. NASBA will issue a Notice to Schedule (NTS). The NTS is valid for 6 months from the date noted on the NTS and will list the section you are approved to take. Your NTS will include the date that your NTS expires.
Once you've received your NTS, you can register to take a section of the CPA exam directly with Prometric, Inc. View the list of Prometric test centers.
