  • The AICPA receives the CPA test files from Prometric testing centers within one day after the CPA exam candidate finishes their test.
  • Any exams that are received after the cutoff dates listed above will be released as part of the next CPA exam score release window.
  • Certain candidates might receive their BEC test results later than expected due to additional analysis. The additional analysis is necessary because of the written portion of the test.
