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. So far, many states have announced their plans to help candidates affected by Prometric closures, and more are expected to follow. NASBA extended all NTS with expirations between April 1 – June 30, 2020 until September 30, 2020, but individual state boards may provide additional extensions.
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.
Many states have elected to extend candidates’ NTSs beyond September 30, 2020, the date originally announced in March by NASBA. Check the charts below or NASBA’s NTS Extensions for updates.
Idaho is the exception. On April 28, 2020, the Idaho Board sent a Proclamation to candidates stating Board staff will be providing 90- to 180-day extensions as needed, and any extensions beyond 180 days will require board ratification. This provision will be discussed at the next Board meeting on June 4, 2020, and continued or expanded if necessary.
