I just recently put together my application package (verification application in a sealed envelope from my employer, sealed envelope transcripts from my colleges, license fee etc), and mailed it out certified mail (with signature requested) on August 11th. And it was already received and signed for by Department of Consumer Protection on August 13th.
So of course I have been checking the “verify license” page of the DCP’s site religiously…but so far nothing is coming up.
My question is for those who went through this application process in CT recently, what is the average time frame it takes CT to process and approve my application? And how would they communicate with me their decision or if they have any questions? Like yes I know I put my address down and email on the paper application but do they contact you directly or do you have to call to follow up?
And on the DCP it states that you have to order your wall certificate through the AICPA store once you get approved from the state of CT. Does anybody have any experience with this part as well that they can shed some light on this process?
I honestly think that this cpa license application process can be a bit more efficient. They should let you create a portal where you fill out the initial application, and then as you mail out your transcripts and work experience verification documents, the online account can reflect that..this way the applicant will know exactly what is missing and what has been received…instead of just waiting day in and day out hoping (and praying) that they received everything and that nothing is missing. Like come on the darn license fee is $300 …I’m sure they can allocate a portion of it to create a portal account of some sort.
Anyways sorry about the little rant…any advice or shared experiences will help me tremendously.
Stay safe and stay well everyone,
