CPA Exam Score Release Dates: A Crucial Guide for Candidates

For aspiring Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), the anticipation and anxiety surrounding exam results can be overwhelming. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has outlined specific testing windows and score release dates for candidates, providing clarity and structure to this critical aspect of the CPA Exam process. Understanding these timelines is essential for planning, and in this comprehensive guide, we break down the score release dates for each quarter, ensuring candidates are well-informed and prepared for their CPA journey.

Overview of CPA Exam Testing Windows

Before delving into the score release dates, it's crucial to grasp the concept of testing windows. The AICPA allows candidates to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination four times per year, each corresponding to a specific testing window. These windows are as follows:

  • Q1 (January 1 - March 10): Candidates can take the exam within this period for the scores to be released on designated dates.
  • Q2 (April 1 - June 10): The second quarter provides another opportunity for candidates to schedule their exams.
  • Q3 (July 1 - September 10): The third quarter window allows candidates to plan their exams and score release dates accordingly.
  • Q4 (October 1 - December 10): The final quarter of the year presents the last chance for candidates to take the CPA Exam within the given testing window.
