    So I applied to take the CPA exam in Ohio after finding out I no longer qualify in Michigan due to changes in there education requirements. Has anyone ever transferred their scores to Michigan and got their license? I have one more exam next month and am now getting concerned that I won’t be able to get licensed in Michigan. Any thoughts?

    I do not have experience with Michigan specifically, but they should have a reciprocity/transfer of license process. Instead of transferring your “scores”, you would get licensed in the State of Ohio (go through the full licensing process), and then apply for reciprocity in the State of Michigan. Following this process will allow you to simply transfer your license, which is what I'm currently in the process of with my state.

    I'm almost certain if you simply transfer your scores, then you would have to meet the normal State of Michigan requirements (because you aren't licensed simply based on your scores), which I think would defeat the purpose of you applying through Ohio. Try checking Michigan's website for “transfer of license” or “reciprocity”. I'm certain they will have additional details on the process.

    Hopefully someone with experience in Michigan can chime in to help clarify, just in case I have misspoken.

    Unfortunately Ohio has a residency requirement. When I got denied from Michigan, the NABSBA coordinator said I could do a wrap around and just apply to Ohio then transfer my scores to Michigan once I complete the exams and I should be fine. I've tried looking into the requirements and there isn't much except the 150 credit limit. It doesn't say anything specific about credits when applying. I think worse comes to worse I will get my license in a state that doesn't require residency like Hawaii (the NASBA coordinator at the time said I could apply there as well)

    Ahhh, I see! That's definitely not my experience, so I will let someone with experience transferring scores and Michigan help answer your question :-). Good thing you have Hawaii as your alternative, as well.
