BECOMING A CPA
To become a CPA, you have to pass the Uniform Certified Public Accountants Examination.
The Uniform CPA exam is conducted by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
All 54 states and jurisdictions of the USA contract with the AICPA to prepare and grade the Uniform CPA Exam.
Passing the exam would place you in an elite group of professionals; recognition, and respect with rich rewards following suit.
The U.S. CPA exam is being offered internationally for the first time as a service to foreign nationals in response to rapidly escalating international demand for U.S. CPA licensure.
The CPA Examination application process is basically the same for U.S. and international candidates. In order to qualify to take the CPA Examination outside the U.S., candidates will have to establish their eligibility through a State Board participating in the International CPA Examination Administration program.
Prospective candidates must select the participating U.S. jurisdiction to which they will apply, contact the Board of Accountancy (or its designee) in that jurisdiction to obtain application materials, submit completed applications and required fees as instructed, and once deemed qualified, register for the examination. After receiving the Notice to Schedule, you may then register to take the examination in an international location through a participating state board.
