In addition to satisfying a demanding set of educational, professional and ethical standards, candidates must pass the rigorous CPA exam in order to earn the distinction of being licensed as a CPA. Before sitting for the exam, candidates must satisfy
their state’s requirements and qualifications for 2015. The requirements for the state of Nevada are discussed below.
Unlike other state boards of accountancy, the Nevada State Board of Accountancy only considers educational requirements to determine a candidate’s eligibility to sit for the CPA exam. At the time of the application, candidates must hold at least a bachelor’s
degree that includes 150 semester credit hours from an accredited college or university. The 150 hours must include:
Applicants must order college transcripts to be sent to the Nevada State Board of Accountancy directly from the institutions. The application will not be considered complete until all transcripts have been received.
Unlike other states, Nevada distinguishes between “initial” applicants and “re-exam” applicants. Initial applicants must submit anInitial Application for Uniform CPA Examinationsform and re-exam applicants must submit aRe-exam Application for Uniform
CPA Examinationsform to the Nevada State Board of Accountancy. An applicant is considered an initial applicant if they have never taken the CPA exam as a Nevada candidate or if they have taken the exam in a different state and either did not
earn credit or wish to transfer credit to Nevada. Applicants wishing to transfer credits must complete an Authorization for Interstate Exchange of Information form. Applicants who have previously taken the CPA exam as a Nevada candidate are
considered re-exam applicants.
The Nevada State Board of Accountancy requires all initial applicants to pay a $100 fee and all re-exam applicants to pay a $50 fee. All fees are non-refundable and payable to the Nevada State Board of Accountancy.
Once the Board determines that a candidate is eligible to take the exam in 2015, the Board will send an Authorization to Test (ATT) to National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), which will send a payment coupon to the candidate. Candidates
must pay all exam fees, in full, to NASBA within six months in order to receive a Notice to Schedule (NTS). The NTS is valid for six months and lists the section(s) that the candidate is approved to take, as well as the deadline for testing.
An examination appointment cannot be scheduled without a valid NTS. Candidates with a valid NTS can contact Prometric to schedule their exam using information on the NTS. Candidates may schedule and take each section of the CPA exam only once
during a testing window. Testing windows are as follows:
Candidates can take one or more sections of the exam at a time and must pay the following non-refundable and non-transferable fees to NASBA at the time of application:
The NTS and a valid form of identification matching the name on the NTS must be presented for entry at the testing center. Applicants arriving without an NTS, or with information on their NTS that does not match their identification, will be denied permission
to test. Applicants will forfeit fees and be required to reapply and pay applicable fees. Upon completing each section of the exam, candidates can obtain their scores online once NASBA has released the information.
While the requirements for taking the uniform CPA exam will vary from state to state, it is also important to keep in mind that there are other requirements for full licensure and certification. Additionally, requirements may change without written notice.
