The AICPA also has a few helpful reminders for anyone tempted to freak out about not receiving their score by the target date (with big yellow letters just to make sure you pay attention):
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 CPA Exams website for information about score release and the scoring process, including the CPA Exam Score Release Timeline FAQs .
If you have any questions, please consult the nearest failed CPA exam candidate who has been through this 25 times for clarification.
