To initially qualify to sit for the exam as a Wyoming candidate, one must: 

a) Be at least eighteen years of age; and 

b) Hold a Wyoming driver’s license; or 

c) Have a current, valid Wyoming street address (not a P. O. Box); or 

d) Be currently employed in Wyoming or have a valid, documented and accepted offer of employment with a Wyoming CPA firm or other Wyoming employer that will begin within six (6) months of the application date; or

Applicants with Foreign Academic Credentials

 An individual with foreign academic credentials who otherwise qualifies to take the examination as a Wyoming candidate must have transcripts from foreign universities evaluated by an acceptable evaluation service at his or her own expense. 

The Board recognizes foreign academic credentials evaluated by National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). Applicants must contact NASBA directly to request the evaluation of foreign academic credentials. This approval process is subject to change. Please contact the Board office with questions. 

Exam Testing Dates and Other Details


Candidates will be able to take the computer based Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination year-round.  CPA Exam scores are released on a rolling basis throughout the year. The score release dates below show when you can expect to receive your score after sitting for a section. This helps you to better plan your testing schedule. 

The AICPA typically announces the score release dates for the first half of a new year in December of the previous year and the second half by June of that year. Keep in mind, the target score release date represents when the AICPA will send the scores to NASBA. All dates are subject to change.

Candidates may schedule to sit for the exam at any Prometric testing site across the nation and internationally (at approved Prometric sites) as long as there is an open spot. 

There are provisions for re-scheduling if necessary, at the discretion of NASBA or Prometric in the event of inclement weather or other conditions outside of Prometric’s control. Details will be provided by NASBA or the testing center. For the best chance of scheduling to sit for exam sections, candidates are encouraged to schedule forty-five (45) days in advance of the test date. This much advance notice may not be required at all centers.

The Board is committed to maintaining the integrity of the examination. All instances of alleged misconduct will be investigated by the Board. Please carefully review the rules outlining the Board’s policy regarding misconduct in Chapter 2, Section 4(e) of Board rules.
