Tonight Marks the Very First CPA Exam Score Release Since the Launch of Continuous Testing

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.

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

If you take your exam on/before: Your target score release date is:
July 23 August 7
August 16 August 25
September 8 September 16
September 30 October 9
October 23 November 10
November 16 November 24
December 8 December 16
December 31 January 12
