CPA Exam 2013 Q1/Q2 Score Release Timetables

CPA Exam score release timetables have been such a hot topic amongst candidates that we have decided to post regular updates. Updated score release timelines will be announced twice annually on AICPA Insights® and will also be posted on the CPA Exam website. Since we would rather have candidates study for the CPA Exam rather 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.

In the first half of 2013, scores for the CPA Exam will be released by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy to individual state boards of accountancy based upon the target score release dates listed in the table below.

* Records received by AICPA. Note:  ‘Day in Testing Window’ refers to the date AICPA receives the test result, not the test 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.
