As most of the world begins to reopen and rebuild in the wake of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, state boards are starting to meet, either in person or virtually, and make decisions regarding the CPA Exam. Most states are granting extensions with no action required by CPA candidates. If you have questions, contact your state board directly.
Gleim will update these lists as more information becomes available.
All states, with the exception of Idaho and Wyoming, have extended NTSs to December 31, 2020. Check NASBA’s NTS Extensions Opens in new window for updates.
Candidates in Idaho should submit requests to the state board office. Board staff will be providing 90- to 180-day extensions as needed, and any extensions beyond 180 days will require board ratification.
Wyoming has not extended NTSs further at this time.
State boards are continuing to meet and provide plans for CPA candidates to continue to test; some have already extended Exam Score Credit extensions well into 2021. Check NASBA’s CPA Exam Credit Extensions Opens in new window for updates
