I sent in my packet the week before thanksgiving and received an email stating it would be a minimum of 10 weeks wait until it was approved. Who knows how long it will take for the actual certificate to get here. I feel your pain. Oh- I'm in North Carolina
I'm in MA and the wait time depends on when the next regular board meeting is. I sent my packet in 10 days before the board meeting (deadline was 10 days before) and got my license in the mail 4 weeks later.
However in MA if you want a nice certificate to hang on the wall, you have to BUY it! Nice huh? I'll keep my $27.95.
Some states are better than others. WA is fantastic. I applied on a Friday and woke up Monday morning to my license number in my email. My actual certificate arrived Wednesday. Other states have to wait forever. Fingers crossed for you that you are in a “good one”.
Be glad you're not in Oklahoma. While I technically did receive a both a license and permit number, the actual “license” is not available until mid-May of 2013….a solid 10 months after passing the final exam!
I am in NJ. I sent in my license application early January. I called my board to find out that my application is sitting on someone's desk (i wonder for how long?). If there's nothing wrong with it, it will get sent to the Board for approval. It's kinda frustrating how slow this process is. I'm starting to think passing the exams was the easy part…
I'm in TN. Received my final score on December 7. Took online ethics test December 9. Received application packet from Tennessee on January 14 and mailed to TNBOA on January 15. My application is “processing” on TNBOA website. I received an email stating they are behind in processing new applications because of renewals. They “hope to get applications processed soon.”
Im in NY and I sent in my papers in December (right before Christmas)… I never got a letter saying that is was being processed or anything, so I called them up a couple times and finally got someone to tell me that they finally opened my mail in the end of January (1 month to open the mail) and they told me it will take another 6-8 weeks to get approval. Once I get approval I should get my license number quick and then a certificate a week or so after my license number is issued… so still waiting..
I'm a MI candidate. I have met all the requirements but am not sure what to do now. I went to the MI Board of Accountancy website but I don't see a link to apply for my CPA. Any ideas? Does one just come in the mail once you pass your exams? Any info would be helpful. Thank you.
