    When did you get that notice? I'm a FL candidate living in NYC at the moment (COVID-19 Central). I got my NTS on Monday and was able to find a testing date of June 8th for BEC at 8:00am in Manhattan. Just to make sure I wasn't going crazy I cancelled it and registered again for the same date and it worked. I was also able to get REG for July 28th. Now I'm worried the June 8th one is a fluke and might get cancelled if they cancelled yours for June 29th…

    AUD - Passed
    FAR - In Progress
    REG - In Progress
    BEC - In Progress



    Can I get an extension of my credit for the Certified Public Accountant Exam?

    Answer: As a result of the COVID-19 related State of Emergency declared by the Governor in Executive Order 202, the Board of Regents has approved an emergency regulation that allows the Department to accept passing examination scores that are outside the 18-month requirement where such examinations cannot be completed in the required 18-month period. As a result of the recent closure of the Prometric test sites due to COVID-19, the New York State Board for Public Accountancy has recommended to the Department that those NY jurisdiction candidates whose exam credit expired from April 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020 be granted an extension until December 31, 2020 for those applicable exam sections. Candidates do not need to contact the Department as the extension will be granted automatically.

    The State Board has also recommended that NY jurisdiction exam candidates who were impacted in Quarter 1 from January 2020 through March 31, 2020 due to COVID-19, will be assessed on a case by case basis. Candidates impacted during the January to March time period, need to contact the Board Office at: CPABD@nysed.gov with their full, legal name, jurisdiction and candidate ID, and provide an explanation of how they were impacted in Quarter 1 (i.e. could not travel from international location, test center closed, etc.). If approved, candidates will be granted an extension until December 31, 2020 for those applicable exam sections.

    AUD - 84
    BEC - 76
    FAR - 79
    REG - NINJA in Training
    If you will it, it is no dream.
