According to the AICPA’s CPA exam score release timeline, candidates who sat for the exam on or before July 23 were due to receive their scores tomorrow, August 7; however, according to a very recent tweet from NASBA, scores are here just a little early.
#CPAExam candidates! Waiting for your score(s)? They will be released tonight at 7 p.m. CDT. Good luck!

I dunno about you guys but I’m pretty impressed they pulled this off. Think about it, they went from “wouldn’t continuous testing be a good idea?” to implementation in what, a year? And launched it smack dab in the middle of a global pandemic no less. Surely that was no small feat. So it’s that much more impressive that they were able to not only meet the first target score release date but early at that. Considering the many, many moving parts at work here, they deserve just a little credit for coming through.
Here are your remaining score release dates for 2020, so plan accordingly:
Testing Window: July 1 – December 31, 2020

Good luck, everyone! And for those of you who receive bad news tonight, stay tuned as we’re working on some advice for scheduling your retakes under this new, blackout-free testing regime. Blackout month free, that is. I’m sure some of you will be well into twilight with a bottle in your hand after 7 p.m. Central, nbd.
