**Due to the changes to the Exam, which become effective with the 2017 April/May (Q2) testing window, there will be a delay in the release of scores with a single score release for all candidates approximately 10 weeks after the close of the testing window. The delay in the score release is necessary to provide sufficient time to statistically validate candidate performance on the new Exam.


Keep in mind:

  • All dates and times are based on Eastern Standard Time zone.
  • For the vast majority of candidates, the AICPA receives the examination data files from Prometric within 24 hours after a candidate completes the Exam.
  • The scores for the examination data files received after the AICPA cutoff dates will be in the subsequent scheduled target score release.
  • 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.

We encourage candidates to visit the Psychometrics and Scoring page on the Exams website at www.aicpa.org/cpa-exam for information about score release and the scoring process, including the CPA Exam Score Release Timeline FAQs .
