CPA Exam Q3/Q4 2013 Score Release Timetables

Cpa-exam-score-release-timetableCPA Exam score release timetables have been such a hot topic amongst candidates that we have decided to post regular updates. Updated score release timelines are announced twice annually on AICPA Insights and also posted on the CPA Exam website. Since we would rather have candidates study for the CPA Exam than spend time notching off business days on a calendar, we have contained the score release timeline in a table below for candidates to easily find their score release dates.

Scores for the CPA Exam are released by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy to individual boards of accountancy based upon the target score release dates listed in the table below. 

July / August (13Q3) Testing Window

**Results Received By Target Release Timeline Target Score Release Date
July 20, 2013 11 business days following the cut-off receipt date August 5
August 14, 2013 6 business days following the cut-off receipt date August 22
September 1, 2013 6 business days following the cut-off receipt date September 10
After September 1, 2013 6 business days after receiving all remaining scoring data for the testing window TBD

 

October / November (13Q4) Testing Window
**Results Received By Target Release Timeline Target Score Release Date
October 20, 2013 11 business days following the cut-off receipt date November 4
November 14, 2013 6 business days following the cut-off receipt date November 22
December   1, 2013 6 business days following the cut-off receipt date December 9
After December 1, 2013 6 business days after receiving all remaining scoring data for the testing window TBD

**Note:  ‘Results Received By’ refers to the date the AICPA receives the test result, not the test date. For the vast majority of cases, the AICPA receives the test result within 24 hours after a candidate completes the Exam. Candidates who wish to improve the certainty of a score release date are encouraged to take the Exam at least two days prior to the cut-off receipt date.

Additionally, some candidates who take the BEC section might receive their scores approximately one week following the target release date due to additional analysis that might be required for the written communication tasks. Scores are generally released during regular business hours.
