Connecticut State Board of Accountancy Grants CPA Exam Extensions to Select Candidates Affected by Exam Revision Delays

At its March 7 meeting, the Connecticut State Board of Accountancy addressed the concerns of CPA candidates who are facing test result delays caused by the launch of the revised CPA Exam.

The revised Exam launched on April 1 for the Quarter 2 (April 1 - May 31) testing window. Consistent with Exam launches in the past, there will be a delay in the release of scores following the close of the initial testing window. Scores will be released once, approximately 10 weeks after the close of the testing window.

Because of this delay, the State Board will, upon request, automatically approve an extension to December 31, 2017 for any candidates whose 18-month window expires during Quarter 2 of 2017. Candidates must request the extension using the Exam Extension Request form on the Department of Consumer Protection website.

All other extensions requests, including those for candidates whose 18-month window expires during Quarter 3 or Quarter 4 of 2017, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
